Do you only post here when you want to try and bring us all down? Boo hoo we overreact sometimes.
No, but we should SUPPORT are team through thick and thin. I understand if someone messes up hardcore to throw him under out of frustration. I get it. But what I don't like is there is always SOMEONE who is targeted by this fanbase.
The only thing people hated on Boyle was him getting lots of ice-time, especially in moments when we are desperate for a goal. He scored 11 goals this year, and those threads were when he had much less. Everyone also criticized him saying that he had a fluke 20 goal season, which was pretty much true.
We always appreciated his defense, but we were certainly not wrong on him being bad offensively, just that he was on the ice in completely wrong situations.
I agree, but I disagree. I don't think he was ever really appreciated -- nor am I saying that you never appreciated him. Boyle was thrown under the bus pretty hard. Even when he was awesome to watch defensively, he would get attacked for his lack of scoring (but guys like Toots and Betts were praised for their defensive work).
