He has his faults, but the things he does well are valuable to pretty much any team in the entire league.
A contending team should not have a Giant hole on its 3rd line, I'm sorry. Teams like Chicago and Boston make a mockery of a Boyle led 3rd line. The Pens have holes too, but they also have the 2 best players on their team. Seriously, I'm tired of the little engine that could boring-ass grind them out, hope for a 2-1 win Rangers team. The Rangers were hard to watch most of last year. Playing guys like Boyle on the 3rd line is returning to that.
