Competent on both offense and defense, plays physical, is an imposing presence, he steps up for his teammates, and gives a **** on every shift. He probably wouldn't look too bad in front of the net on the PP either.
I think Krut is onto something. Boston didn't need all the centers they acquired, but they've found a way to make them fit. The other thing is and I know Horc probably isn't going anywhere, but you bring Boyle in and at a later date move Belanger. Boyle brings an element that Horcoff and Belanger don't have and that's a physical edge.
