Boyle broke his foot early in the season, played through it, and still put up nearly 50 points from the back end.

And despite 2 points in 5 games this last postseason, he still approached a point per game pace the previous 2. With Lidstrom retired and Pronger likely out too, Boyle is now the game's premier playoff performing defenseman.

He is getting up there in age and his salary is high. I certainly understand Ranger fan's concerns and disapproval of this trade, but he's still one hell of a player and would be a MASSIVE boost to any team in the Cup hunt.
