Pyatt is as useful as a 4th-liner of his salary point really ought to be (yeah, Halpern is a lot more valuable, but he's a third-liner and on one of those late-signing-vets contracts). He spells the top guys, handles soft minutes, and puts in tons of quality PK time; that's really all you can ask of a guy like him, and that's honestly really quite a lot. I think he's a good guy to have on the team so long as he's not thrown into things he cannot handle (like Gomez's wing).
He's not a bad guy to have on your team but Martin seems inordinately enamored of him and it's been a problem before.
Boyd, however, is pretty much useless, which would serve to put the Sergei Kostitsyn trade/giveaway into more question if Boyd hadn't actually ended up being signed as a UFA. Boyd should probably be the pressbox guy for the foreseeable future.
