It's funny cause the usual complaint is that his hits, although copious, aren't hard enough. They were tonight and he still catches heat.
It was Chimera who he hit. A clean, legal hit from the front. Hit someone else just after that.
I agree, Boyle gets a bad rap sometimes. We all know his faults, but he does add something when he moves his feet and uses his size. I think sometimes people also criticize him because he can't fight despite his size, and because he has stone hands. He is an excellent 4th, and sometimes 3rd liner and good on the PK, he gets flak because he's Torts' boy (despite the benching) and gets put into situations where he doesn't belong. Worst thing that happened is the fluke of his scoring 22 goals two years ago. He's not that kind of player.
