Pittsburgh might be a good fit for him. I wasn't one on the Canes board that fell into either camp (overly negative or overly positive) and I hope he gets a chance. He has some speed and skill, but for whatever reason hasn't been able to lock down a spot with the Canes (while guys like Skinner, Tlusty, Dalpe, and Bowman have). I think a lot of it has to do that while he is skilled, he hasn't been able to immediately produce (like Skinner has) so he has to be strong in other parts of his game in order to get playing time. The other guys (Tlusty, Dalpe, Bowman) have all shown they can play more physically, are stronger and are better defensively, even though I think Boychuk has better skill and offensive upside over those guys.
