We're on the same page. I'd be just fine with Boyle as a 4th line option if we had someone better. Unfortunately there just isn't that two-way 3rd line option on our roster. We'll have to look elsewhere for that. Lars Eller maybe? Can't seem to find a spot on the Habs roster but he has some upside offensively and can play in both ends. Not a great faceoff guy, and his boardwork is mediocre, but giving him the right wingers might take some of the expectations off of him there.
Of course ROR would be ideal, but that's not happening with all the cap concerns about next season and his seemingly unreasonable demands.
I'd give Eller a chance. I always felt he had some untapped offensive potential. Yes, I'd love ROR, too. Him and Callahan on one team...wow.
I hate to say it, because I'm not a huge fan, but maybe Antropov would be a decent idea.
