never said he was ENTIRELY useless.

just VERY limited and it's easy to spot the very useless when you have been playing and watching the sport for over 35 years.

I may not be an expert, but I can tell when a guy is getting played above his skill level and out of a position that would better suit his tools.

I can also tell when a guy is effective physically.

I give the guy all the credit in the world for being a top notch PK'er. And if he was played and payed like a 4th liner, I'd have no issues with the guy.

But he's paid to be more than a 4th line PK'er. He's given the minutes and responsibilities of a 3rd liner.

He's not cut out for that.

Lets put it this way. As long as Boyle is the teams 3rd line center, we will not win a Stanley Cup.
