Boyle should be on the 4th line with Moore and Dorsett/Asham. Then we have a 4th line that is near the top of the league. IMHO we need to trust our young guys who have skill, and in Miller's case, grit to man our third line so the scoring threat exists for our top 9; not just top 6. And let's be honest our top 6 is not going to fill the net as often as a contender's top 6 should.
I'm thinking the same thing here.

If we are still going to be relying on the top two lines to carry the offensive load while we have a "defensive" 3rd line and a 4th line that provides much of nothing, then we are going to be in for a very disappointing season.

The third line HAS to be a threat to score.
