He is absolutely useless in the offensive zone. He is 100% to blame on the only goal the 'Canes scored tonight, for unfathomably trying to force a cross-ice pass through the neutral zone with his team up by 3 with 10 mins. remaining. The PP looks good, when he is either a. not out there or b. doesn't touch the puck.
There are two kids in the system that have shown they can come up here and play in Torts' system without being the detrimental black hole of offense that Brian Boyle is. As it is... he gets the most ice time of any player. Tort's... BENCH THIS GUY AND BRING SOMEONE IN HERE WHO CAN PLAY HOCKEY!!!
How about playing him the amount of minutes he should be playing? THis game wasn't Boyle's fault, Tortorella massively overplayed him for some dumb reason. A lot of players weren't really on tonight, Boyle's game was magnified because of the ridiculous amount of ice time he got.
He was good playing 3rd line minutes the last 3 or 4 games, but tonight was ridiculous. Torts needs to not mishandle his players like that, it'll cost us in the playoffs.
