Yup, Boyle is a huge upgrade over Thompson, and I believe he was brought in with a playoff run in mind. For NY he played huge defensive minutes, was a key player in their last two playoffs. Big minutes from this guy against the opponents' top lines, defensive zone faceoff machine... nothing not to like with this guy. TBL's lineup is markedly improved over last year, I'd have to say if the D can jell, a strong run is in order for May....

Boyle was terrific in the playoffs. The exact kind of physical, defensive presence we need. I checked a NYR blog and some of those fans are losing their shit over Stralman and Boyle, using words like "catastrophic failure."

Watch the Rags trade Marty to the Oilers for some young talent, maybe like Benoit?
