And the team will be better because of it.
Stats would argue that Boyle is in fact, at this point in time, better offensively than Jeff Halpern.

Last 2 seasons, Boyle has 61 points. Last 3 seasons, Halpern has 61 points.

So you're advocating for more offense. I would argue, with facts, that Boyle is better offensively at this point in time, than Halpern (who has yet to score a point in 11 games as a ranger). And i like halpern.
