Let him go against 2nd and 3rd liners, protect his ice time more, let him PK, and he'll be a beneficial part of this team. As a FOURTH LINER.
THAT'S the only problem- his defense is NOT deteriorating (really? 09/10 Boyle was a completely useless waste of space, this Boyle is decent defensively and is a good PKer) Put him where he should be.
He's starting to become this seasons whipping boy because he had a fluke year last year.
Bam, no more relying on Boyle to score 20 goals again.
Wolski on the top line makes me want to puke. The guy does nothing out there to deserve first line minutes.
As for Boyle, he's a 4th line center at this point.
