The Brian Boyle project didn't work in LA for many reasons, the Kings didn't know what to do with him and Boyle was a gentle giant. He wasn't the most assertive player in terms of initiating contact or using his size to his advantage. But seeing him in NY, they are giving him more ice time and more of an opportunity to succeed, and he's running with it, so good for him. I didn't see that happening for him in LA.
********.
