The Rangers traded a 3rd for Boyle when was basically an AHL player. He isn't worth than a 3rd after he established himself a legit NHL player? The Rangers would probably want a player in return. A defenseman. A younger cheaper forward.
He was an AHL player who was a former 1st round draft pick, being unestablished and holding a value based on potential, they were basically paying the third to take a chance on him living up to his 1st round potential. He clearly has not and now that he is defined to his playstyle it is more likely he is actually worth that third based on his actual ability rather than potential.
