Leafs press release:

Brian Burke, President and General Manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs, announced Tuesday that the hockey club has recalled forward Darryl Boyce from the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League. The Maple Leafs also placed Colby Armstrong on injured reserve with a concussion and he is out indefinitely.

Boyce, 27, has appeared in 22 games with the Marlies this season, collecting four goals and six assists for 10 points with 22 penalty minutes. The 6-0, 200-pound native of Summerside, P.E.I. registered 13 points (5 goals, 8 assists), a plus-eight (+8) rating and 33 penalty minutes in 46 games with the Maple Leafs in 2010-11. He also collected six goals, 10 assists, 16 points, 48 penalty minutes and a plus-seven (+7) rating in 35 games with the Marlies last season.

Cherry now has his opening material for the next Coach's Corner.  Then again, the Leafs could have recalled Wayne Gretzky and he'd still have his opening material.

I would have given Kadri a chance.  Maybe in the last 20 games or so he will get called up, helping the Leafs rush for 10th again.

Now they can re-unite Boyce Kessel Crabb line. That was good times.

I think the thought here is to fill the role of a more defensive minded player....Kadri doesnt quite fit

Boyce will hopefully be given some time on the PK which he seemed to do well at last season

But the Leafs don't have a defensive system so I am not sure how Crabb's defensive style will fit into the Leafs non defensive system. 

Even dropping Dupuis in favour of Kadri would make the team better.

Exactly. The only hope this team has to make the play offs is to load up on offense and run and gun like they did in 98/99. If all of a sudden Wilson is trying to turn this team into a defensive team then we are screwed. Defensive teams know how to get the puck out of their zone.
