“We’re not going to trade him,” O’Connell told the Boston Herald.

so don't say i can't read. but it looks to me like this is a deal that toronto wanted, not boston.
Well maybe he should have you don't read very well or that you take things out of context pretty good. This is what was really said..

There has been speculation in Toronto the Maple Leafs would love to get hometown kid Boynton, perhaps in exchange for pesky center Darcy Tucker. But O'Connell said Boynton either rejoins the B's or doesn't play.

Now maybe its because I don't look for reasons to cut up the Leafs but that certainly doesn't sound like something definitive. But you are right, Toronto would love to have him on the team, probably though, also many other teams as well.
