That was there lineup through most of the playoffs. Kruger, Bollan, Saad, Shaw, Stalberg, the only guy at the bottom of the lineup that wasn't realyl scoring in the regular season was Frolik.

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!
