I don't see it, his only asset is his penalty killing ability because he barely has any offensive touch and does not use his size effectively. Boyle is better than average on faceoffs but we have Drury, Christensen, Anisimov, Dubinsky, Prospal, and Kennedy who can all take faceoffs. This isn't even factoring White who I just don't see beating EC and the Kennedy signing dooms to Hartford IMO.

We signed Kennedy who is not as good defensively, but can put up some points... I have a feeling Boyle is waived and Kennedy takes the 4th line spot.

Penalty Killers
Drury-Callahan
Dubinsky-Prospal

Prust can kill penalties if needed and Gaborik has killed penalties as well

I see Boyle as quite expendable
