Refer to my last post about maximizing assets.
Secondly, why do you bother referencing Lucic? How many players in the league are like Lucic? I'll tell you, not many. Maybe only able to count on one hand the players that are similar to Lucic. He is a force. So it is absolutely unfair to compare Brian Boyle to Milan Lucic.
You throw out these names as if a team would offer a Morin or Hartman for Boyle. They won't. Look at what Clowe got. Draft picks. Look at what Douglas Murray got, draft picks. Gaustad two years ago, draft pick. You don't see prospects dealt too often. All 3 of those players have more value than Brian Boyle.
We are better off keeping Boyle and having him for a playoff run. There is a benefit. Cap space when you let him go. Or he goes out and his a huge part of the success and you re-sign him if feasible.
