I don't think he's ever been given a fair shot by the kings or in new york for that matter. I guess time will tell but I'm pulling for Boyle.
Boyle is as Boyle does, and long as Boyle does fetus impressions in the corners, Boyle 'aint an NHL player.

What I find funny is he seems upset about how he was treated in LA, but aside from the switch to defense (which I agree was a big mistake in handling Boyle), its not like Tortarella is asking anything different from Boyle. They want him to be the same player he was asked to be here, a big, gritty, mean 4th line center who is responsible on D. He is not expected to score there.
