Brian Boyle could be worth Matt Moulson $$$

Trying to find a comparable for Brian Boyle is not easy. Boyle will be a group II who is arbitration eligible this July. Boyle is one year away from being a group III in July 2012. Boyle has become a key player for the Rangers. 38 games played. 14 goals. 22 points. +11. Top PKer. 82 game projection/pace is 30 goals and 47 points.

David Steckel got $1.1M per. 3 years. Boyle has more goals in 38 games than Steckel has in points over a full season.

Jay McClement got 3 years/$4.35M. $1.45M cap. McClement is good for points in the high 20's. Good role player.

Matt Moulson. 30 goals and 48 points last season. Moulson was a group II. He filed for arbitration. Signed a 1 year/$2.45M deal before the hearing. Moulson will be a group III this summer. Boyle is in the same exact situation. Boyle is on pace for Moulson's offensive numbers. Moulson had 1 very good year and cashed in. Both are former Kings prospects. Offensive players in the NCAA and AHL.

Steckel,McClement and Moulson deals are a combination of group III money and last year of group II money.

Moulson is the best comparable. Boyle's agent will think so. Barb Underhill deserves 20% of whatever Boyle gets. Do the Rangers look at signing Boyle to a 2-3 year deal for around $2M per? Boyle might trade security for less annual salary which is not what Moulson did.

Ryan Callahan will get paid. Regardless of his broken hand,the Rangers will pay him. Torts LOVES him.

Brandon Dubinsky is on pace for a 35 goal and 69 point season. Even with offensive slump until recently. He will get paid

Torts has identified both Callahan and Dubinsky as core players.

Artem Anisimov has been identified a core player by Torts.

Michael Sauer has had a solid year so far. Arb eligible.

Not even mentioning Matt Gilroy who is also arb eligible.
