It’s Not His Fault, He’s Just Too Old
Listen, I’m not a bad guy. I just see reality.
Dan Boyle is just way too old to keep up with these youngsters each and every night.
We’re not talking 34 years old, or even 37. This man is 39 years of age. Most hockey players this side of Jaromir Jagr start losing steam once they hit 35.
It’s evident when watching the games that Boyle has to put in so much effort to simply keep up with the quicker players of the world. On Saturday against Detroit, it was Boyle who couldn’t find a very “unlucky” puck that popped in the air and near his feet leading to the Red Wings last goal.
Watch Boyle moving forward: He’s always a step slow.
