The Rangers are not asking him to be a 30 goal scorer. Just fill his role, which he does. His line has constant pressure in the offensive zone. He PK's. He hits. He fights when it is needed. He wins face-offs. He matches up against the other teams best lines.
The fact that people are all over Brian Boyle for not scoring means there are glaring weaknesses elsewhere in the line-up.
He's not going to score 10 goals in a season anytime soon; he has no playmaking ability. He brings character (supposedly) and a commitment to defense. His bad puck skills make him nothing more than an average 4th liner. NOthing more.
