Fedotenko-Rupp-Prust is better than wasting Boyle on the 4th line. I understand he'll get his ice time on the PK, but if you get him on the 3rd line which he was pretty much on in terms of even strength ice time last year, I think he can probably do even better than his numbers last year (marginally)
Brian Boyle had a strong start last year. However after January 1 (44 games) he had 7 goals and 4 ( yes 4) assists and he didn't score in the playoffs. He's a 4th liner; a defensive player; that's it. Is he offensively ******** like Blair betts? No, but if he scores 10 goals this year I will be shocked. Leave him where he is so he doesn't hurt lines that are expected to score on a regular basis. And he is nowhere near the player Feds is.
