Every once and a while things will fall right for Boyle and he'll have a stretch where he gets some ugly goals and creates some offense. It happened in the beginning of the Ottawa series and for a stretch in the regular season last year or the year before, can't remember.

The majority of the time Boyle is a useful 4th line center who can kill penalties. Here is what the coaching staff needs to decide. What do we want our 3rd line to be? If we want it to be a shutdown defensive line, then Boyle should be centering it. If we want it to generate offense 5 on 5 then he should not be centering it. Boyle has limited hockey vision and that is being kind.

As for the powerplay. If torts wants someone in front of the net to screen the goalie and get some ugly goals, that person should be Cally.
