Would you trade Dan Boyle to shake up the team in the offseason?

Have you seen him this series? He's been horrible. He's held the puck far too long, coughs it up at the wrong time, and his skating if definitely declining. Combined with the fact that Burns, in my eyes, has really emerged in this series and I'm ready for him to be our all-situations #1. He's miles better defensively than Boyle (I'd say he's our second best defensive defenseman), almost as good offensively, a better skater at this point, stronger, and less of a bloody puck-hog. I think Demers will have a bounce-back year next season (we have to hold on to him this off-season, unless there's a really good deal, because he has way to much potential to sell-low), and that between him and Burns, we can cover for Boyle.
