Agreed. The hate around here is pathetic. But Boyle should be used where his talents are utiliized and not making him into something he is not. With the return of Cally & Kreider, the additions of Powe, Mashinter, Ferriero, Powe and Palmieri (creating competition) and the possible emergence of JT Miller, this should be possible to accommodate on the roster and Boyle can finally be slotted into the place that works best for him and the team. A defensive 4th line of Boyle - Halpern - Asham/Powe is not bad at all. It is getting the 3 lines on top of this to function that is the real test.

There I would like to see:

Hagelin - Richards - Gaborik/Nash
Pyatt/Kreider - Stepan - Nash/Gaborik
Kreider/Pyatt - Miller - Callahan
