Do some of you guys just not understand how good of a player Boyle is?
You know I'm a huge Boyle guy Jon.

That said, I do agree with the choice to scratch Boyle for tonight's game. Not the general idea of hating on Boyle, but if there was anyone to send a message to through benching, it was him. He needs the kick in the ass. When he's hitting, moving his feet, and using his size, Boyle is an extremely effective player. He hasn't been doing that as of late, though, and just because he's still been a PK asset doesn't mean he should get a pass for his sub par even strength play. He even seems to have admitted himself that he's gotten a bit complacent, and complacency is one of the worst traitx you can have in a professional sport, IMO.

Get him in there over Asham next game. If he plays with the fire he's played with the past two years, he'll stay in the lineup. Hopefully, he comes out on fire and stays in the lineup. This team with Boyle on his game will have the perfect bottom-6 with the additions of Miller and Kreier to the lineup.
