A season is not made up of ten game stretches.
That ten games is fine, but where was he during the rest of the Reg. Season?
before that ten games he was a threat to score once every 10+ games. NOT GOOD ENOUGH
And while we can improve the talent up front all we want, until that third line becomes more of a threat to put the puck in the net consistently we will still struggle to score goals.
Boyle, being the center, has a responsibility to help generate that offence and thus far inot his career, he has not shown the ability or consistency to get that done.
For me, it's not a bad thing as I believe he is a better than average 4th line center, but I do not believe he has the tools needed to help make that third line offensively capable.
I posted this in the other thread:
Not sure why we're taking away that 10 game stretch.
Take away Richards 10game stretch in March and his production doesn't look good either.
Boyle's brightest moments of the season are being written off for some reason.
