Im going to refer to the Devils fourth line of last year. They did more than crash and bang and that helped them win the series. He will take and give some hits for sure (true no matter which line he's on, but maybe more so on the 4th line), but he will also add passing and skill to the fourth line, with Dorsett and Boyle throwing their bodies around, creating space for him. Dorsett has a pretty good shot and could be able to bang in a couple of Clowe's passes.
If he's still to fragile to take the abuse I don't want him out there at all. Just wait until he's ready to play playoff hockey.
