His rough play and defensive awareness make him just what we need, really.

That and I can watch him KO Ryan Carter for hours.
You need one, and only one, checking/defensive line and we have a great one: Boyle-Moore-Dorsett.

Teams that have their 3rd line as their checking line do so out of necessity because they don't have the depth to run three scoring lines. We actually do and that is a point of strength.
