If your going to pick apart Boyle, give Cally his fair share of criticism as well.

He's never stepped it up in the playoffs, besides maybe the first game of the playoffs.

Boyle, on the other hand is a big reason why we made it this far. He was our biggest scoring threat against Ottawa. I shudder to think what would've happened if he was dumped away like fans proposed.
People are criticizing guys like Boyle, Callahanh, Hagelin for things that they're not. Callahan is a second liner, not a first, Hagelin uses his speed to create chances, plays good defense, Callahan hits, scores 20-30 goals, many of the garbage variety. Boyle is a 4th liner. Problem is lack of a guy who can finish the chances others create.

Despite scoring twice in the last two, Gaborik is simply not trying hard enough to create some space. He's really about our only talented goal-scorer.
