Called It!

From Inside the Kings:

“Brian Boyle has been sent down to Manchester. There isn’t expected to be a corresponding move.”

Yes, Brian Boyle, you really just did lose your place on an NHL roster to Derek Armstrong. Hope you have a Patrick O’Sullivan-type renaissance in Manchester.

It’s always lonely when you are 6’7″.

Of course, Let’s Go Kings is all over this story. I had high hopes for Boyle, based on his size, his college career and the scoring he did during his brief call-up last season. He’ll show a flash of brilliant puck handling skills once or twice a game, but overall this season he has seemed completely lost out there. I hope some time in the minors will do him some good.
