I don't see the Rangers moving him, honestly. He's their go-to center in the defensive zone, and he does a great job in that role. IMO, the Rangers would have to undervalue him significantly to let him go for what I would consider to be a "reasonable" return. If Gaustad netted a first at the deadline, then the Rangers would have every right to expect that and more for two full years of Boyle.

If the Blues had him as their 3rd line center, I wouldn't complain. His offensive tools are a bit more limited than what I would ideally like to see with the wingers he would be playing with, but he brings an awful lot to the table beyond that and I think he would fit in well with Hitchcock's system.
