there was talk Boychuk would be available when BOS was looking into Yandle and other options in the summer.
I think he is a great defenseman and is a specific type of player that either fits your need or not. He isnt one of the flashy ones that gets alll the HF attention but he does what he does and brings the game he always brings. I know his NMC is changing on a quarterly basis right up to january next year.

It would also tie in to how quickly a couple of the prospects can move up. Hamilton has looked better than i ever thought (in such a short period). Eventually you move people so other people get the ice time to progress. it happens or players development years get wasted.

My opinion is that the Bs didnt do all that chit-chatting with GMs for top D-men just to have hot tub discussions.
