There have been games this season where Boyle's line have had better puck possession and opportunities than our top 6. Unfortunately, they don't have the hands of Gaborik, so they aren't going to score that often. Yes, it's frustrating that Boyle has hands of stone, but he's doing good things out there other than scoring and he always puts in a 100% effort. I almost wish last season never happened because now it seems like the expectations for him are too high.
they have puck possession behind the net; news flash. The opening to the goal is in the front. If you cannot turn that into scoring chances in the slot they you are just killing time. Which again would be fine for a 4TH LINE.
