I know I am going to be a minority here but I see a real possibility that Dan Boyle is a Ranger next year. This happens if a) Stralman walks and Klein gets bumped up to second pairing, b) Stralman signs and Klein gets flipped for choices at the draft. Klein's contract is too rich for a 3rd pair stay at home defenseman. WSould be perfect for a team (Edmonton, Calgary, winnipeg) who can't get a player to sign a long term contract.
At this point in his career, Boyle would be well suited to playing 12-14 minutes a game and running the second power play unit with John Moore. Short term deal of course. I saw enough of Boyle this year to be very comfortable with him in a reduced role.
Really like Winnik a lot. Thinks he makes sense as 4th liner and penalty killer. Adds some grit. Only reason he is getting squeezed in Anaheim is because they are so deep.
