Eller and Boyd have to play together. They both have 30+ points potential, which is great for 3rd line players. I still would like to give them a player who'll make them some room. And in my opinion, this is Ryan White's spot to lose. I still think this guy has higher potential than some might think, and that he's exactly what this team is looking for. He would bring aggression and a solid forechecking presence to this forwards crop, and he could let the other two guys do their thing while taking care of backing down and of defensive business.
I am just curious as to what HF poster told you this, because i know the Habs brass never saw Patches as a power forward.
