Because we have a boat load of guys that are better than Boyle defensively and are quicker on the PK making them more useful than Boyle.
Avery actually playes BIGGER than his size whereas Boyle plays like he's Avery's size.
Boyle has 2 goals and 6 assists in 35 games
Avery has 3 goals and 0 assists in 15 games all the while playing less minutes.
Boyle has an OK defensive game. Not Great. It's OK at best.
Boyle still skates like he's standing in place and rarely punishes the defence on the forecheck
Avery is faster, hits more oftem, hits harder, is better goal scorer, is better passer.
The only edge Boyle has is defensive and as mentioned, we have a boat load of guys I would entrust on the PK before Boyle.
