I really think Boyle will continue to progress and even if he "only" scores 20 goals, he is a big body who can create room for his teammates and play solid defensive hockey.
The only options that are on the roster today for the LW spot on a Richards-Gaborik line are Dubinsky and Boyle (who I suggested, with the possibility of then signing a Jeff Halpern to center the 4th line).
You have to have some kind of physical presence. Dubinsky is a better, more physical player, so I'd prefer that, especially if we keep Prospal (who could play with Cally and Artie). If we don't keep Prospal and don't sign any LW free agents, then Boyle might be a solid choice so that we could keep Dubi on the 2nd line.
