Just how bad does Boyle have to suck...

for him to be traded or cut? I can't think of a worse forward in the NHL. How how how how how is this clown who uses none of his size, is slow and has no hands STILL a Ranger or even in the NHL? How is NYR management this stupid?

Also how is this no skill waste of a player a media favorite? I'd rather have any other NHL forward as well as many AHL forwards in his place. Why are we not burning him at the stake? Year after year his suckery goes unnoticed. It's tragic.

Boyle not scoring goals must mean he sucks.

PKing isn't part of hockey.

He's a fourth line center. What do you want?

We should be more concerned with doing something with Dorsett first

maybe a fourth line center who logs less ice time honestly. i think that's fair to ask. he's out there with cally and actual scorers (for rangers at least) for christ sake.

Define worse. I can make a pretty long list of NHL "players" worse than Boyle. Don't blame me for your horrible hyperbole

Trade bait as an expiring contract at best. An offensive black hole and isn't being used in a defensive role like Torts had him doing, which hided his deficiencies.

You've changed your argument. I have no interest in this conversation if you're gonna just change your argument because of your bad hyperbole

That's not his fault. He's a fourth line player that's being asked to do more than he's capable of.

If Boyle was only asked to kill penalties and play a few minutes even strength, no one would have a problem with him. Blame the guy that constructed the roster for that.

I can kind of deal with Boyle on the team. The issue is, coaches overplay him. I thought it was just Tortorella but now AV does the same ****. He's a 4th line player but doesn't get 4th line minutes. It honestly needs to stop. If it doesn't then the GM needs to trade him.

He took idiotic penalties the whole game.

Dorsett was a bigger problem than Boyle tonight IMO.

Boyle is a 4th line center. The problem is with coaches over playing him.

Boyle is not a bad hockey player, but he is played too much.

I have absolutely no problem with Boyle as a 4th liner and penalty killer. None whatsoever. But he should not be logging 15-16 minutes a night.

The obsession with Boyle by some fans is bizarre. He is fine for what he is and losing him certainly doesn't change anything in a positive manner for this team.

this is a less angry version of my post. he needs to be played a lot less, with the 4th line and PK only or go.

Boyle has been okay.

Too bad the Rangers have to put him into an unrealistic role, hoping he will fill in for the lack of scoring from the top six.

Many posters on this board don't really get that.

The problem isn't Boyle himself, the problem is Boyle on the 3rd line.
