I mean, no, he's not a proven 30-30 guy, but he fits the mold for that line so well with good size, speed and physicality and he's put up pretty good numbers without a good playmaker. He's the kind of player we could use on that line and could boost his numbers playing with Richards and Gaborik.
Problem is, he's had injury issues, and is wildly inconsistent. He'll score 10 goals in 15 games then 1 in 10.

I want a physical monster on that line -- Boyle, Dubinsky from within the organization, a player like Clowe, Neal, or Lucic in terms of trade.

Honestly, just put one of Dubinsky/Boyle there. It adds balance.
