A 3rd line center should be something the team looks into getting at the deadline.
IDK if Miller can be that guy for them this season.
It largely depends on who Miller is playing with. If Miller is centering Cally, then Cally can help a bit with the defensive lapses of Miller.
If our third line is supposed to score more than being a defensive matching/checking unit; then Miller could be fine in a third line capacity.
All I can say is, Boyle should not be utilize in a third line capacity; if at all.
