That's simply not true and I question how you can come to that opinion by watching the games. Is Boyle anything great? Not at all. But he's fine as a fill-in 3rd line center and a very, very good 4th line center. His defense is great, his PKing is great.

Halpern is completely useless 5-on-5. Completely useless. Powe and Boyle can at least contribute by cycling the puck, etc.
