i'd probably say it's gaborik for rangers fans. some guys on here still complain about his playoff performance despite the well known severity of his injury that he played(pretty successfully considering) through... pretty sure somebody a few posts above me posted the playoff example...
i'd say it's staal for the rest of the league. just the other day i saw him called a #3/4 at best on most teams in the league which is just brutal. imo he challenges mcdonagh for a top pairing spot when healthy. very likely our best defenseman in the playoffs.
i don't think anybody really underrates boyle's defense, and his offense has never been proven (okay... one season it was good). boyle is only criticized as our 3C because he's a defense-first guy. we had a defensive 3rd line last season and our secondary scoring was abysmal at best. in order to correct secondary scoring a 'more' play-making oriented center such as JT miller(when ready) makes more sense than brian boyle.
i'm sure 'people' also wish boyle would take better advantage of that size of his and not be such a ***** sometimes.
