Not really. A 1 year deal isnt going to hurt anyone. They need some form of "scoring" forward next year. I'm not convinced the prospects are ready to make a jump to the first line for 82 games, so we need some form of stop gap who can fill in for a yr or at least till Strome is ready. Boyes fills that role. If he wants a long term deal then you move on and find someone else for that role. If he is willing to sign that 1 yr deal, and you can get decent production out of him, then why wouldnt you? Plus you can always move him down the line up, move him, scratch him. Its a 1 year deal, no biggie.
Im not saying I like Boyes or think he is a good player. I would love for them to sign an elite RW, but I just dont see it.
