Seriously though, Boyle has alot more value than alot of his detractors would have you believe. He's great at faceoffs, is responsible defensively, PKs, plays physical, and chips in an occasional goal. AND, most importantly, he steps up his game in the playoffs. Boyle is the type of player every team is looking for going into the postseason.
Boyle gets overused here. He shouldn't get as much icetime as he does, and he sure as hell shouldn't be out on the PP, but how is that his fault? In a role as the 4C, top PKer, and defensive zone draw specialist, I seriously can't think of a better player.
Yes, that is worth a late first to many teams.
