A good friend of mine has played a decent amount against Boyle and Baillargeon. He's a really good player who will play pro and likely would have been drafted if he was a bit bigger (not my opinion, but the opinion of an NHL GM). He played against Baillargeon 2 years ago and Boyle the past two years. Anyways, he says Baillargeon is a good offensive player but not nearly as solid as his stats make him out to be. Sort of a textbook player who is more of a complimentary player than a spearhead. Doesn't see him having NHL skill.

As for Boyle, he said that Boyle has a really good chance of being a player. Solid, mistake free guy who can play bigger than his size and really dominate a game. Maybe went a bit too high but the Sens thinking he's worth that pick makes him think he has a pretty decent chance at being a bottom pairing D. Really, there was nothing bad he could say about him and he definitely is a guy who has a solid shot if he keeps working his ass off.
