Can't imagine Boychuk doesn't get claimed but if he gets to us there's absolutely no reason not to give him a shot. Yes, he's struggled to make the squad in Carolina, but he has a good skill set and is a hard and willing worker. Torts might be able to get a bit more out of him and the change of scenery could do him well. Costing nothing more than a roster spot, while we're in need of NHL bodies, there's absolutely no reason not to claim him if the chance arises. Worst case scenario, he doesn't help and we waive him/send him down. He could easily be a guy who gets picked up by the Islanders and has a 40 point season next year.
