So you're advocating for more offense. I would argue, with facts, that Boyle is better offensively at this point in time, than Halpern (who has yet to score a point in 11 games as a ranger). And i like halpern.
It's not about the offense. I'd take a 4th line that scores less but spends their time in the other team's zone. For the 3rd line you absolutely need offense, that's why the people arguing all season what a great 3rd line C Boyle is are hilarious.
