I like Boynton as much as anyone... I want to see MOC sign Boynton today to a 5 year contract and name him the Captain for next year in the off season. He's my second favorite Bruin all time next to Cam Neely.
All that being said, there is not a GM in the NHL that would takee Boynton over Jackman though.
And do you say that after asking all 30 GMs their opinion?
I think of Jackman as a limited-offense, physical defenseman. Boynton on the other hand is also very physical and tough, yet can put up many more points than Jackman. I don't really see any advantage that Jackman has on Boynton to be honest, unless you want to delve into contract negotiations, but that is a different can-of-worms all together.
