I just think it's a little sad that we're all clamoring to see how he'll do in our top six. So that's where we're at now, huh? Is there even any indication that that's where he'll be tried?
Possibly. But reading the Cane's board, it sounded more like he was blocked there by their depth at left wing. Their GM also seemed to want him back and is hoping the Pens put him back on waivers so looks more like a no room and needing time to develop issue than actual bust:

Rutherford on what kept Boychuk from being NHL player: "With us, his consistency."

Rutherford said if Pens at some point this year decide to put Boychuk back on waivers, Canes would claim him.
