Yeah, I can only cement the opinion that nobody is really that angry at Boyle, it's Torts who is the perpetrator here who refuses to play Boyle in his right enviroment. That means no frigging PP time or top 9 time. Let him play center on the 4th line where he can be effective and doesn't neuter our offense in the progress. Boyle is quite alright defensively (when he manages to play physical), but a black hole offensively with an average shot, bad passing, horrible stickhandling and no offensive awareness whatsoever.

Torts always has some lumberjack pet project with some big, slow player who he tries to turn into some copy of Jarome Iginla (Brashear, Boogaard, Scott, Rupp, etc, etc). They're brought in to "be good enough to be used in multiple situations" and then never is. Let's just conclude all these goon/ lumberjack projects haven't turned out that well at all.
