I still remember he was on a hot streak and what did the Kings do...they send him to Manchester....?!?
Yes kid was a bit lazy and unmotivated sometimes but doing that doesnt help either.
Both are guilty, both Boyle and the Kings.
He's now playing in New York and I hope he will succeed. I always liked him.
End of story.

You also said Brown had one of the hardest slapshots on this team and that one of Stoll was weak.

I think you need a vacation.

Boyle is a liability, and must be traded-oh yeah, never mind.

i don't want to see the guy fail, but...

the only things the Kings may be guilty of are drafting a project like Boyle in order to assemble their 'dream line' in the first place, and not dumping his ass after failing to listen to reason when he refused to turn pro when the pros said he needed to.

That would be quite a stat at the end of the year.

He was more concerned about winning a national championship and forgot why he was drafted by an NHL hockey team. Taylor should have moved him while his stock was high after his junior season at BC.

I guess the team heard me. Now Brown has more goals and Stoll has as many.
But Boyle still has more than Smyth, Kopitar, Simmonds, Zus, and Poni.

I forget who said it, "Boyle doesn't have enough skill for the top 6 and not enough grit for the bottom 6".
The right choice was made with him in the end.
