Did play a little bit with Crosby & Dupuis and seemed okay but he needs at least one pure grit/grinder type and another decent forechecker.

He can't replace Whitney but he'll probably limit the downside to no longer having Ray.
Thanks for the input. We're likely to have him slotted in Whitney's spot on the "Prime Line" with Hanzal and Vrbata, but in the off-chance Boedker moves up there instead, the Vermette/Doan line forechecks just as much.
