for the role needed, paying someone like Prust (a glorified 4th liner himself) 2.5 million is absurd.
So while I will agree that in terms of hockey Boyle is the better option, it's pretty obvious that just being a better player will not cause the coach to choose you over the lesser player.
That's because what Asham does do, Boyle doesn't and while I will also agree that Asham has lost a step, even still he is a better option in that regards than Boyle is.
