Talking Boyle & Backstrom

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

Finally, Dan Boyle got his due.

The 11-year NHL veteran, among the league’s top defensemen for at least half that time, was selected to play in the All-Star Game for the first time.

“You know what, I had been in this situation before, where I had a good start to the season but didn’t go, so I wasn’t thinking about it too much, to be very honest with you,” Boyle told ESPN.com. “But when I found out, it is a bonus. It’s not a goal I set every year. I’ve got bigger and more important things on my mind.

“But it’s only human nature to feel good about it. It’s nice to get recognized.”

continued plus a ldiscussion with Niklas Backstrom of the Minnesota Wild..
