If you're going to call Boyle offensively inept, then you have to recognize that Brassard is defensively inept and not exactly a world beater offensively either. Lets not forget he got some time with Nash in Columbus.

Anyway, they're both 3rd liners right now, where they should be. Im not the one trying to make Derick Brassard a better player than he actually is.
I'm not making him out to be anything since I've only seen him play 4 games...I'm only using your methodology in evaluating Boyle's offensive ability...which is his 300 NHL games played.

Maybe you've seen him play more, but I'm going off what I've seen in his short tenure in NY.
