If Lindberg comes over, proves he's NHL ready and ready to win draws and play PK for 82+ games we can talk about moving Boyle then. As for "a team gave up a 1st for Gaustad", Yes! A playoff competitor gave up a 1st to pick him up from a non-playoff team. We're the former, not the latter (hopefully) and thus we're not selling. Do I move Boyle for a 1st if we get our ducks in a row and look like we can compete this year? No. The 1st isn't going to kill penalties in the playoffs for us. We won't even see it in the lineup for 2-4 years. I'm not selling. Boyle and a pick for an upgrade on D and an okay depth forward: Maybe. Boyle for a pick: Absolutely not.
hey i'm fine with it if your right. As long as they can sign their RFA's next yr and don't have to move anyone sure.

I think Boyle will back in the lineup real soon because Torts does like the guy and was just setting an example. I think they bench Halpern over Asham though. For some reason the NYRs have to have a tough guy in the lineup and Asahm is waaay better than Bickel

I also think Boyle is going no where this yr becasue he does add depth plus Miller and Kreider are still unknows. It would be stupid to deal him now UNLESS they were to acquire an equal forward in his place plus a Dman

I think we are going to hear Boyle, Eminger, picks, prospect for a Dman and Forward though. Does not mean it will happen. More likely to happen is picks for rental UFAs and keeping the team as it is now.
