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

Boyle is far from the problem with this team. He has leadership and a strong desire to win which are qualities you want from a player come playoff time. The only fault he has is that sometimes he tries to do too much by himself, which to me says that he doesn't trust his teammates. Personally I think that's been a pretty big issue this year, and it's really obvious especially on the power play.
He should considered for a trade only because he's getting up there in age and the team should think about getting a decent return for him while they can. You're not going to completely replace his production in free agency, but if the Sharks were to sign someone like Carle in the offseason and if Demers/Braun/Burns take up more responsibility on the backend, then losing Boyle won't hurt the team as much as one would think.
