Doesn't work that way. At the time Boyle was on his entry level contract which would result in him being a restricted free agent, meaning he would be basically bound to the Rangers for years if they wanted him.

Boyle is now a UFA at the end of the season, meaning he's a pure rental for any team that trades for him.

A more valid comparison is Michal Handzus, who in the same situation last season (a UFA at the end of the season) returned a fourth round draft pick.
