Exactly my opinion. Boyle is a great fourth liner who can PK very well. If he was playing just there people here would love him. He gets all the hate because Torts overplays him and relies on him generating offense, and that's just not his strength.

All we need is a bottom pairing defenseman as Stralman has shown he is more than capable to be relied on. We have five good to great defenseman and only then there's a very big dropoff. Pick up a veteran who can fill that role at the deadline. If he has a big shot or can QB the PP that's even better.

If Miller and Kreider can contribute, I think our forward depth is more than enough to compete. Provided that Stepan and Hagelin can return to last year's form.
