He's a good defensive forward (who is good at faceoffs) and grinder and belongs on the PK getting 10 mins a night. Nothing more, nothing less. I expect him to get a little bit less time in the playoffs, though physical playoff hockey is going to favor Boyle's game IMO.
Oh it's not his fault at all. He's an effective player when played in the right role. When you put him out for 18 minutes obviously he looks overmatched, kills offense, and makes mistake.
