Would he move Boyes, an impending ufa? I think that depends entirely on how Boyes' extension talks are going. If Boyes demands too much money or too long a term, I expect he'll be moved by the trade deadline.

Then it comes down to whether the Yotes gm, would want more then a rental for Klesha.

This is just my opinion - I do not want Boyes back.

Why this works for both sides if the Yotes are making a playoff push and the Isles are not..

1) Klesla gives the Isles a year stop gap crease clearing d-man for a year until either Rheinhart or Mayfeild are ready.

2) After the Yotes trade Klesla this opens up a spot for Gormley ( on an ELC) which is an upgrade on defense for them, gives the Yotes 2 million saving next year and Gormley some valuable playoff experience. Boyes helps offensively.

3) Next year ,with that extra 2 million dollars, the Yotes can either put it toward resigning Boyes or another foward in the F/A market.
