Yep, his effort and skating have been VERY impressive. He is great at using his stick to create turnovers. Torts has to be loving it.

I 110% agree. He should be re-signed. He has added a lot of creativity and gives Torts flexibility as he has looked good anywhere in the top-9. Add to that the fact that he is a good PP player and great in the shootout and there is no reason not to sign him.

MZA was great, but the reason that line works is because Boyle is incredibly defensively responsible. Brassard and MZA have some work to do there. Boyle does the dirty work in the corners and creates room for them.

Would it have been nice if he scored? Of course. But let's not act like Boyle is pulling them down. He has been great.
