I don't think anyone is arguing that he is the best third line center in the league, or a premier third line player. I think we can all agree on that.

However, it seems like the people who aren't high on him are trying to make the argument about him not even being a third line center by picking apart the fact that he isn't the absolute best third line center in the league, as oppossed to whether he is in the mix as far as third liners go.
I'm saying that Brian Boyle cannot be a third line center on a Stanley Cup winning team. As far as him being a serviceable 3C on a competitive/playoff team, whatever.
