That truly was one of the dumbest moves of Lombardi's tenure. Right up there with signing John Zeiler to a one-way 4 year contract after 23 games at the NHL level.
I believe the intrigue with Boyle on defense can be attributed to how Boyle was used at BC by Jerry York. He had him play defense at times. Given his size, the Kings probably thought they could paint stripes on a ***** cat (hence the phrase Lombardi has thrown out there about that). But yes, that was ultimately was a failed experiment.
