I don't think anyone is arguing that he is the best third line center in the league, or a premier third line player. I think we can all agree on that.
However, it seems like the people who aren't high on him are trying to make the argument about him not even being a third line center by picking apart the fact that
he isn't the absolute best third line center in the league, as oppossed to whether he is in the mix as far as third liners go.
If you want to win a championship, you need to have guys who are among the best in their niche compared to the guys filling the same niche on other teams in as many niches as possible.
Playing on the 4th line, or even as a 3rd line wing, Boyle would be better in his niche.
