Boyle is a very, very effective winger. not as effective as a center, unless its a pure 4th line mode, but he can play any of the top 9 positions as a board winger. he's very effective on the boards and goes to the net. he won't score you goals or get a lot of points, but he gives you quality minutes and helps maintain offensive zone time and pressure.
those guys are EXTREMELY valuable. as a center, he had way too many responsibilities defensively and isn't a skilled player so can't do much in terms of generating a cycle because of how responsible he was defensively, but on the wing, i REALLY liked what I saw. Put him with a guy like MZA to create some time and space for the feisty winger....or put him on a 3rd line with a guy like Cally..
Losing Boyle is tough for this team. he does a LOT of things to help us control the puck...and it goes way beyond faceoffs.
i'll be happy when hes back in the lineup.
