The fact of the matter is that neither player brings much to the offense. So, considering the premium put on offense on this board, why is Dorsett a better option on the 3rd line than Boyle?
My point is - given the parameters as I understand them around here - neither should be on the 3rd line.
While I would agree that both Dorsett and Boyle offer similar numbers from the 3rd line wing position, I would opine that Dorsett being a better skater alone makes him a better option for the 3rd line.
I would also opine that Dorsett being the better forechecker (better speed and a much higher want to engage physically) is better at opening up the ice for his teammates.
I think putting him on a line with Richards and Ziccs would generate better results than Boyle or Pyatt in that spot.
