Not at all.

Boyle can score as evidenced by his nice littel 21 goal season. Having a playmaking LW for him would benefit him, not hinder Tanguay. As for Kreider, he absolutely NEEDS someone else to carry and dish the puck.

I like Kreider, but he's going to be that kind of player that is carried by the playmaking skills of others. with his size he will create room and with his shot he's going to bury his chances, but he needs a creative player to play with.

That line would have a great balance of size, speed, skill, defensive awareness and more than enough grit.
