I think you give Boyle way too much credit for his ES defensive game. And I think Torts agrees with me.
Maybe he is overrated. But its like because all of our other centers are not very good defensively, and that includes Miller who - at age 19 - hasnt even begun to learn what it takes to be an adequate defensive player at the NHL level. Saying that a Miller or a Halpern can step into the niche Boyle has created is ignorant and not a well thought out answer.
