At this point it looks like 50-50 at best that Boldy is in the lineup tonight. Evason's comment is that Boldy is "available to us if we see fit to put him in." It sounds like it will be a game time decision.
What he's doing is keeping the opponent guessing. Smart move by the Evanator.
Yeap. I can see DeBoer not sleeping much last night and barely keeping his food down knowing that his bigger, faster, more talented, up 3-2 team and how they're going to handle a 20 YO rookie making his first minute in the NHL. I know I would be a hot mess.
LOL, that was my thought as well. People are yammering for Boldy like he will save the series for us and he has yet to play a single game in the NHL.
Listening to Russo when he was on with PA this morning it sounded like having Boldy on the ice today could mean he gets his first taste of the NHL......
Or it was all just a smoke screen....... time will tell.
I'd just like to see Boldy play before we head into the offseason. Boldy won't save the series for us, but I would rather go down with him playing sight unseen over Bjugstad.
