And Boyle lost that faceoff but stats say he's going to lose that face off at least 4 times out of 10. MIller can't stand there and stare. That's beer league stuff.
Meh. There are certain guys - a very few - for whom "locker room presence" is truly irreplaceable. Quite frankly, they tend to be guys who are also leading players - or at the very least former stars who are now mentoring kids. Sure, there are guys who are "good in the room", but they're replaceable by other guys who are "good in the room".
We're not talking about Mark Messier (the '94 version) here, folks. If Boyle's locker room presence was really so valuable, it seems to me the team would be doing a lot better than .500, no?
If there's a good deal to be had for him, he should be gone.
