Now, is 26 points 3rd line production? Technically, yes it is. Especially for a good defensive player. He was 211th amongst forwards in scoring in 2011-2012. That's a #7 to #8 forward, statistically speaking.
Boyle has periods where he is very productive offensively, but they come in huge bunches. He's been trending down the last two years. His stats look a lot better by him getting hot late in the season 2 seasons ago. I also don't think that Boyle is the type of player that fits into an AV team, a Torts team yeah. I therefore don't understand AV's decision, I think he just doesn't trust Miller yet.
