However, I disagree about trading Boyle. IMO, there is only 1 player on this team that you don't trade, Lundqvist. All others for the right price, I would move.
And along these lines,
the one player that could replace Boyle is Halpern
and he seems to have fallen within the good graces of Torts.
Halpern is 36 and not signed beyond this season. Do people bother to understand the personnel they've got? Boyle is 27 years old, signed to a manageable deal with high utility because he works on the #1 PK and can move up the lineup in the event of injuries or the need to shake things up. He doesn't need to be re-signed. Just because he's in Torts' doghouse for a day does not mean his ticket has been punched. Could he be dealt? Sure. He's not even close to untouchable. It just doesn't make sense from a hockey perspective. These boards are never happy if they aren't actively shopping someone.
