You can interchange them, Boyle is just a better FO guy. CT on the top line because if he had so many goals over in the O, and has good speed and he can keep up with Richards and Gabby, then play him there. The Oilers never put Hall on the 3rd line and Tampa never put Stammer on the 3rd line either. They put them on the 1st line and let them adjust. If this guy is going to be the go-to guy of the future, let him play top minutes and get used to it early on. I mean sure start him lower on the 3rd line just to settle him in, but I can see him on the 1st line by the final months of the season.

All of this, of course depending on whether or not he makes the cut. If he doesnt Zuc can take his spot on the team, just not at top LW. This is just my opinion, however. Not saying this is the team going into the fall just saying the way I would want it.
