Boyle's PK ability is nice and all, but as a 4th line grinder, he lacks grind of any kind.

The PK will be just fine without the big softie.

A Prust - Weise - Byers line will be a very physical, in your face grinding keep the puck deep kind of line that teams need and feed off of.

I just see having Boyle out there providing for such a different (not in a good way) dynamic.

To me, Boyle should be the odd man out.
For starters, Weise isn't a center.
