But third line center duties is not going to cut it with Boyle.
For his size, he is actually a good skater. Put another big-body on that 3rd line, or even move Prust up and that has the makings of a very good shut-down 3rd line that can grind it out in the corners and create some chances.
Burish can PK as well which would help take some of the load off of players like Callahan and Stepan to keep them fresh. The Rangers can't go into next season having a player like Mitchell on the 4th line who will play 3-6 minutes a night for 82 games. It's just too much ice-time for everyone else over a long season.
