25 yr old Grabner for 1 or 1 and 1/2 seasons of 36 yr old Boyle.

also, I'm not gonna get too excited about a mid-late pick, who's tearing up juniors at 19/20 yrs old.
The round he was taken in shouldn't really matter. The guy's numbers are impressive any way you look at it, but the fact that he's been steady defensively is what has me excited about his NHL upside. I wouldn't be surprised to see him step into Bridgeport next year and immediately be their best offensive defenseman. How he adapts defensively will tell a lot, though.

Either way, I said I'd consider the trade for Boyle, not that I'd necessarily do it. I'd prefer to move prospects/picks, but if it was Grabner+ or bust I wouldn't just walk away.
