Morning Player Notes in the Draft (Jan 26)
True to form, the New York Rangers decided on scratching veteran defenseman Dan Boyle on the second half of back-to-back nights, keeping his aged legs from getting too tired during the season. In his time spent in the lineup, he has only just been okay for the team offensively, picking up 5 goals and 14 points in 42 games, ranking 329th overall in pool scoring.
In my mock draft for next week's Waiver Draft, I think Scott has some bigger fish to fry than to possibly drop a defenseman, who is theoretically still pool worthy, as the 67th ranked defender this year. These healthy scratches though, they're killers to his cause, sitting 12th, 33 points out of the money.
