Coyle has 5 points in 17 games, out of which he's played 15 with Koivu and Parise. That's not 1st line worthy production, no matter how you want to look at it. The 1st line needs someone who can be a regular contributor on the scoresheet as well as outside of it (like Coyle is).

I'm sure Coyle will start potting them eventually, but when will that be? Nobody knows that. He'll be a great player and contribute in the future, but right now his production doesn't justify his spot on the 1st line. He seems to be there just because when it comes to playing style, he's the best fit.
