Until they let him play within what he has already shown he can do, we will never get a true idea of what he could become.
Hence the Eric Daze comparison: did Chicago bench him because he was softer than guys half his size? No, they made great use of that great shot and great hands and let him become a soft-for-his-size 40-goal-scorer. It's fairly obvious that the Kings will not settle for that, so I'd like to see another team give him a shot.
Don't get me wrong I'm a fan of Boyle's but not for our #2 Right Winger and our #4 defensemen.
Now Boyle for Martin St. Pierre is something I would do.
