And just in case anyone was wondering, that was not selective, there was actually only one post acknowledging the Powe penalty.

edit: Also this isn't really a fair comparison because Powe isn't put in to situations people feel (justified or not) he is not meant for, or will fail at. If Powe was getting regular PP minutes I think people would develop an adverse reaction to him as well.

I really do not think people hate Boyle just because they want to hate Boyle. There are reasons they hate him, it's more a matter of whether or not those reasons are factual, exaggerated, or irrational.
They tried giving Powe PP minutes and he somehow shot the puck over an open net from the goal line .

I can see your point, but if that's the case, the anger is misdirected.
