"We've talked to Boyd's agent a couple of times, and we've also talked to a couple clubs about a possible deal," Poile said. "We can still sign him between now and July 1 or we could trade him. There's an outside chance that one of those two could happen."

Boyd doesn't become a UFA until July 1st. His trade value is extremely low right now due to not being signed, but Poile did not have to qualify him to trade him and had Boyd accepted whatever offer Poile made...he would be under contract to the Predators and possibly kept through training camp before being traded.

Boyd had every right to decline an offer below his QO and I don't blame him. Bottom line is that he is not likely going to be with the Predators next season and I think both sides are fine with that...
