Good teams need players like Boyle.
I pretty much agree--Boyle has been playing well--defensively he's been very solid and he's getting more confident about shooting the puck again. Hopefully, he'll score a couple of goals and really relax. He's not going to score 20 this year, but I think he'll ultimately break out on offense.
