Maybe the 10 minutes he played all season took valuable ice time away from Lars Eller.
Maybe this team didn't want a player with a full head of curls. To which I say, DISCRIMINATION! Is this part of a greater conspiracy? Did I just figure out the real reason behind the Maxim Lapierre faux-hawk?
Maybe Pierre Gauthier wrote Boyd's name down to remember that he is indeed a "Dustin", but accidentally wrote it down on his spare set of waiver papers.
Maybe those waiver papers were intended for Scott Gomez because Gauthier was told once and for all that Montreal would not get Jarome Iginla. (But Iginla for Gomez would make me happy.)
Maybe it's time for Boyd to play in Edmonton or Tampa Bay - we all know the best way to play there is to be a former Canadien.
Maybe someone in the Habs' front office doesn't like the list of "Boyd" puns I keep in my back pocket.
Maybe he was not the Boyd we're looking for.
Maybe we'll start seeing some forward lines that make sense without having to worry about the odd man out.
