Boyle isnt even mediocre, he's plain bad. Pyatt comes alive once in a blue moon, but he's useless the vast majority of the time.

Obviously I dont know what goes in behind close doors, but I can't think of many players in the league who would be less likely to be a problem in the room than a quiet veteran leader like Halpern. There has never been a single report that would ever suggest that he is anything other than a boon in the room.

How do you waive a dirt cheap, useful veteran leader outperforming expectations over complete crap like Bickel, Pyatt, Or Asham, or an overpaid Boyle who does everything Halpern does...just worse, and for more than twice the cost.

Typical Rangers mismanagement of assets.
Bottom 6 needs to bring toughness or offense. Halpern brought neither. He did nothing but skate fast. Really confused as to how anyone could defend him
