No kidding. People need to give their head a shake on expected point production. It's tough for first-liners to score in the NHL today much less 4th liners. A guy like Brian Boyle has a role to play and he doesn't sufficently that he has the coach's confidence. Coaches lean on "their guys" all the time, even if the trust is inexplicable. To me, there are bigger concerns than what Brian Boyle is or isn't doing on the ice.
