When does Nick get his arbitration rights?
The Cba negotiations could work in the players favor this time?
Nick could be one of those hard negotiating types - as he was with Washington, and now twice with the bruins..

Post your solution, and lets debate it out..

Trade him? Give him more on the One year deal? Go for a 3 year pact?
Other options?

Personally, I cannot see Boynton only being worth 770k when you are paying Hal Gill 2 Mill..
Eric Gagne makes $400,000; Albert Pujols makes less than a mil; Boynton has to wait his turn and due his time- the Broons are absolutely right here- and you will find no bigger Boynton fan on this board. I have no problem with this two year deal- as long as it doesn't get in the mud it should be worked out. He's vital to this team who without the defense suffers significantly but with is OK- IF he and Jillson both are on the ice and playing well the future looks pretty damn good. I have read a few Jillson posts that make him seem like he's struggling and have yet to see him in a practice or game- but the comments I heard is that quite the contrary he is giving glimpses of someone who is starting to look like an NHLer- and I took that to mean a decent one. I can hardly wait to see him myself (not that I'd have a clue- although I did recognize Orr would be good even at 7 )
