Some Quick Hits Re: Brad Boyes

As advertised, it’s buying time in Buffalo.  The Sabres gave up a 2nd round pick in the 2011 draft to acquire Brad Boyes (RW) from the St. Louis Blues.

Boyes has 12 goals and 29 assists for 41 points in 62 games this season.  He’s already the Sabres second leading scorer and has been on a good run with 3 goals and 19 assists in his last 24 games.

With Drew Stafford and Jason Pominville already on the right side, it will be interesting to see where he is slotted in the Buffalo lineup.  Sabres GM Darcy Regier could be picturing the 24th overall pick in 2000 as a center in Buffalo.

Boyes has one year remaining on a contract that has a salary and cap hit of $4 million in 2011-12.

I believe Boyes is a natural center who got shifted to the right due to the Blues overload at center/needs at RW.  Perhaps he’ll be filling Niedermayer or Hecht’s locker tomorrow?  (A girl can only hope…)
