Just because we want to open up our offense doesn't mean there's no need to keep a guy like Boyle. We still need guys to forecheck, kill penalties, block shots, play defense, win face offs and retrieve pucks in dirty areas. Boyle can still do that quite well. One can only hope that our injury-free lineup includes him on the 4th line and out of must score situations. Ideally Brian Boyle is playing no more than 12 minutes a game. That being said I believe he's still a valuable asset for us, both on the ice and off. No need to make lateral moves with him.
