Dustin Boyd?

I know there's still some time left to go, but I find it pretty odd that we've heard absolutely nothing in regards to the status of Dustin Boyd. He'll become UFA tomorrow at noon.

I personally think he'd be a great fit in the bottom 6, and I'm hoping we can get him locked up to a 2 year deal at 800K per season.

Anyways, does anyone else find it odd that we've heard nothing..not even a quote from either PG or Boyd himself?

2 years 1.5-1.6 total would be good.

He wasn't qualified by Nashville, thus making him UFA tomorrow at noon.

Ahhh, okay. Didn't know that! Well then.. Im hoping we sign atleast one of those two so that it doesnt seem as if we traded SKOS for nothing.

You're not alone. I find it odd too that we haven't heard yet about the progress of contract talks with Boyd (or lack thereof).

Personally, I don't believe Boyd was just a throw-in in the deal. He looks like an asset that Jacques Martin could definitely use for his versatility on the 3rd line, and as a candidate to step up anywhere in a top-6 role here and there, either as a center or as winger, when someone on the Gomez/Plekanec lines gets on a cold streak.

Somewhere in the 750-850k range would be fairly satisfying for a player with that type of untapped potential.

All in all, I'd find it pretty disappointing that we let him go when we had like 36 hours to work on something with him.

Do I guess that means we didn't offer him a contract and he's a UFA? Because he wasn't qualified, I don't think.

Sounds like he does have some interest, but he wants to see what's out there tomorrow. So, looks like we're in the same situation with both Ellis and Boyd.

That's what I thought Le Tricolore was referring to. One of the funniest threads.

Probably height requirements.

Can anyone confirm these two reports I've been hearing ? 1 is about Boyd. Is a UFA ? and was Gorges really a captain ?

One of these times I'm going to call him Body.

Still so confused - TSN is still saying he's RFA with arbitration rights. Surely they're mistaken
