When it comes to Boyle I think 5 points in 38 games, and a -13 for a guy who should be better defensively.

I think penalty killer. I think guy who can fill in on the third-line pending linemates.

What I don't think is power play player. I don't think guy on the ice in the last two minutes of the game player.

Boyle, if used correctly, is an asset to have. I hope when Callahan and Hagelin are healthy, that Boyle finds himself on the fourth line wing full-time, never seeing power play minutes, and not touching the ice in a game the Rangers are down a goal with 2 minutes to go.
Great post and surprisingly very objective.
