If it comes down to it, a Boyle trade should only be done if it makes us better in the short term. A draft pick doesn't do that.
Are they not big-bodied checking centers?

Nice of you to leave out the fact that Boyle has somehow outproduced Gaustad in goals and points the last two seasons, and blocks twice as many shots.

It equals out. Desperate teams like to add "grit" and checkers to stock up for either a Cup or playoff run. Everybody tends to overpay at or around the deadline.
