If Boyle can progress like we hope he should, I think he can turn out to be a Keith Primeau type player. If you've followed Keith Primeau's career since he was drafted #3 overall, you'd remember the years many thought he was overrated and shouldn't have been selected where he was in the draft.
Statistically, Primeau has had an up and down career, http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/p...y.php3?pid=725

But in the long run, he has been a valuable asset and has evolved into a solid two-way performer. If you only observed Primeau's first season in juniors, you wouldn't have thought of him becoming such an impact player, and people would have laughed if ya told him he'd be a top 3 selection in a deep draft.

Basically what I'm saying is... give the kid some time before ya start labeling him a dissapointment, like many critics did to Primeau.
