Just cuz he's 14th in hits, doesn't make him a physical, tough player.
I'm not a Boyle hater, he's an ideal 4th liner (3rd when he's playing really well) and penalty killer, but to label him as a tough guy is wrong IMO. For his size, he is FAR from tough.
Seriously? Other than saying he's not tough because I say he's not, one should rely on some statistics, no? I'd say hits, blocked shots, roughing & fighting calls as well as TOI (to some extend) would provide you with some measure re. hockey player "toughness".
