He can get in the way of a puck and win a little more than 1/2 his faceoffs. Fine for a 4th liner. But nothing more. Asham has actually made some plays in this league and he can protect his teammates. Right now Boyle is somewhat redundant. We have plenty of PK guys with the new additions and Cally being healthy again. Asham is unique on this team because of his toughness and that's right he has superior hands and a much better shot than BB. I'm not sure where all this Asham hate comes from. He's a Ranger now and he is acclimating. Boyle has no excuse for his play that is worse than usual.
