I like Boyle, but I feel that acquiring him isn't the direction the Sens should be going in.

Don't get me wrong: if we could get a bargain on him, I'd be all-in, but I feel as though the kind of team that values Boyle the most would be teams in "win now mode", which isn't exactly where the Sens are at the moment.

By the time we DID get to "win now" mode, Boyle would be approaching super-declining vet status. Just doesn't make sense.

If Ottawa is targeting a defenceman via trade, they need to be looking for guys closer to 30 than 40. Again, that's just the way the team is built at the moment. Doesn't tarnish Boyle by saying Sens fans probably decline most Boyle offers: it's just not the direction we're going.
