Yes. Coyle is probably going to be a 25/25 guy who adds size to a top-6 line made up of more skilled players. Which is good because every good team needs those players. But people who were projecting him as a 30/40 1st liner were stretching him a little bit. That was never really his game, despite his nubmers in the Q.

That said, Coyle-Granlund-Zucker could be a fantastic 2nd line if those three ever get going at the NHL level.
