It's not meant as an insult. I like Boyle fine. But he is what he is. The point was that outside of a few standout names, a team that was very deep and cohesive is now a team with a first line and then a bunch of "odds and ends" (there, do you like that wording better than "scrap"? You can have a good odd or end). The point is it's like a barrel of random players with no design on how they fit together. Guys who were perfect fits were arbitrarily cut loose in favor of new odds and ends without any real logic behind it. Boyle can look 'pretty damn good' all he wants (and I agree) but it's NEVER going to win you a hockey game. I'd give a toe to have Boyle, Prust, Fedetenko getting 12 minutes a night ES right now.
