Hags - Step - Nash
Pyatt - Richards - Gabby
Kreider - Miller - Cally
Asham - Halpern - Powe

I'm all for trading Boyle. His $1.7 cap hit can be used elsewhere with much greater benefit. The guy is an offensive black hole.
Scoring goals like crazy is a bit of a stretch. We beat up Tampa and the Islanders, two teams with below average defense and shoddy goaltending, and squeaked out a SO win in Boston while giving up 40 shots on goal.

I think if the Rangers had a replacement for Boyle lined up, or if he was garnering any interest in trade, something would have been done by now.
