Out of all the options we have, I actually wouldn't mind seeing Boedker. He could potentially be another Darren Helm, who was an important part of Detroit's success for the past two years. He played limited but high-energy minutes at both ends of the ice, and like Boedker, he's known for his speed. Helm also threw a lot of hits, but there are enough guys looking to hit already and Boedker wouldn't need to worry about it as much. We know Boedker would bring the speed and offensive upside, but the bigger question would be whether his defensive game and his toughness are up to the demands of the playoffs.

I just don't think Tippett will put him in. He knows what to expect out of Bissonnette and Vandermeer, and that counts for a lot, especially with coaches like him.
