It would be different if Boyle is playing with guys who put up 15+ goals. But as i said, he's essentially considered to be "leading" the third line. He slows down that line and is so defensive minded that he forgets about offense.
He is not a suitable third liner on a winning team.
Again, he is a useful player, as has been said. But he belonds on the 4th line, playing 5-9 minutes a night and not sniffing the ice on the PP.
Handzus was not around for most of the season and if you want to talk about a black hole offensively, look at him.
He had 8 points in TOTAL last year. 8. And he is their 2nd line center? Boyle should be the 2nd line center in NY then!
