If he wants more then let him work. He is a lockerroom guy, who is decent on the dot, plays physical, and is a great PKer. He is a guy you keep. Not Dorsett.
Boyle being good on faceoffs doesn't really matter anymore as he no longer plays center. He tooks a few faceoffs on the PK and that's about it. Since the start of December (21 games) he's taken 122 faceoffs for 5.8/game. Moore has taken 182 in 20 games for 9.1/game. So now essentially we have a winger who is slow, can't handle the puck at all, and rarely takes faceoffs (his best attribute). Essentially all he is good for is PK'ing. I'd absolutely trade him now and use Carcillo/Dorsett over him as they are both faster and much better with the puck.
