i always thought tv could be good there with his shot and his passing. he may not be the most creative guy but he is smart with the puck.
It remains to be seen if Boyes has the kind of hand-eye coordination that Vanek does in deflections, or if he's physically strong enough to take the kind of poundings in front of the net that Vanek does.

From the scouting reports I've read about Boyes, he's proven to be most effective during power plays by firing one-timers from either faceoff circle similar to how Pominville has sometimes been used.
