I'd rather win 8-4 then lose 2-0. The team's shooting % with Boyle on the ice is hysterically awful (2.93%). Compared to guys like Richards (8.27%), Brassard (9.06%), Stepan (9.63%), Nash (9.69%), and best on the team Zucc (11.11%).
Boyle basically has 0 offensive instinct, so having him on any scoring line brings down the entire offense. This was a major problem when the roster was thin and Richards was slumping. The resurgence of Richards and additions of Zucc/Brassard have really turned the offense around.
If/when Boyle comes back he needs to be on the 4th line and only on the 4th line.
