I think we have the current personnel and the prospect depth to be a legit cup contender in 3-4 years.

Selling some of that prospect depth or roster players for a guy who will be 39 when we get to that point seems silly. If Boyle was 32, I'd say go for it. But 35, considering where we want to be, is just not worth the assets it would take to get him here.

Don't get me wrong: if he were a UFA or could be had at under market value, I'd be all up ons. I just don't think it's worth it for us to pay what I EXPECT the asking price would be.
