I don't buy that Boyle will be traded, obviously if there is a deal too good to pass up sure, but No Hags and Cally to start the season, Powe will most likely start the season in Hartford. That is 3 penalty killers right there, Boyle is our second best PK forward behind Cally and the best on faceoffs, he will not be moved regardless of if we sign Moore or Lapierre, especially since Boyle can play center and wing. Boyle will play 3rd line center this year, this is a contract year for him, I expect to see a lot more of the Boyle we saw in the playoffs in the regular season if he wants to be back here next year.
