My issue is that they're inevitably going to overpay some ex-all-star burnout with the loose change. Might as well give it to Stralman if that is the case.
Yep, that ex-all-star burnout appears to be Dan Boyle:
The Blueshirts would have interest in Boyle, known throughout his career as an offensive weapon at both even-strength and from the power play point, if general manager Glen Sather is unable to lock up Anton Stralman, their own impending free agent right defenseman, to a multi-year deal in the neighborhood of $4 million per year.
As of early Wednesday evening, by which time the Rangers’ front office contingent had descended on Philadelphia in advance of the Entry Draft that will be conducted on Friday (first round) and Saturday, Stralman was believed to be scouring the market
