Boyle to LW; Halpern (650k/1 year) as 4th line C

Mods, shift this into another thread if you like. Wasn't sure where specifically to put this one.

I think the Rangers should re-sign both Prospal and Fedotenko if they get Richards, with Prospal playing 2nd line LW and Dubinsky on the first line. But if they feel Prospal is too big a risk because of injury concerns, one possible solution to the dilemma at LW could be to move Boyle to LW (where he would probably be a more effective player) and sign a veteran like Halpern to a cheap one or two year deal. 600-700k. Adds a calm veteran presence in the locker room, good defensively, and quite good at faceoffs.

I wouldn't mind a guy like Konopka, who some people have proposed, but I think he'll cost more. The Islanders will probably be eager to retain him, at least I think they should. He's not bad.

But in 2 years, we'll have Lindberg here. We really only need a stopgap till then.
