"With a salary cap hit of $525,000, Boyle's goals (through games Jan. 21), cost the Rangers an NHL low $35,000 each. Compare that to Marc Savard, whose two goals have cost the Bruins $2,003,500 (based on a $4,007,000 cap hit).
And he's remarkably productive, given his time on ice. Every minute he's played has cost the Rangers (based on salary cap) a mere $724.05. Compare that to the $16,236.47 per minute his teammate, Derek Boogard makes."
Boyle's former Boston College coach Jerry York had this to say about Boyle being a late bloomer...
"I'm not surprised he's a late developer," says Jerry York, Boyle's coach at Boston College. "It took him a while to become dominant player at the prep school level and at the college level, until his third and fourth years."
...not sure where the Rangers would be without Boyle's resurgence this season. You just have to have so much respect for a guy who knew he was on the bubble and decided on his own to put in the work to get better. Kudos to him.
