No he's not.

What he is saying is that another way of playing a sound defensive game is the keep the puck in the other end of the rink.

When Boyle is out there, the puck, more often than not, gets pinned in our end forcing us to scramble to play defence and block more shots than we should have to.

There's alot of merit to the saying "a Key to a good defence, is a good offence"
