When I saw him at the Development Camp, I saw glimpses of potential, but like Steckel, there were loooooong shifts of just coasting and skating in circles. I was not a big fan of him, however, I hope he will mature and bring some good offense to the table with his size. Remember, Bertuzzi was criticized for being too soft for a big guy. However, he finally lit a fire under his butt (maybe a little too much with the Moore incident) and became a dominant force. I don't think Boyle will ever match Bertuzzi, but he may be able to leave a slight mark in the NHL.
