It'd only be a good idea if we were able (or already have) to acquire a younger defenseman of his stature. But that's potentially costly (unless we drafted someone that has similar skillset).
I don't want to cut quality d pieces just for Tyler Kennedy, we can do a whole lot better than that.
I'm not saying he is going to be a future star, but I think he would do well with us. Plus we would have more money to tempt Doan. I'm not saying overpay but at least get in the ballpark of what some teams are offering.
If we're trading a #1 defenseman, I expect more than just a 3rd line winger, a 4th line grinder and a pick that does nothing for a team looking to win now.
I'm expecting something like Orpik+ Sutter+ 2nd. People forget Boyle is still one of the best puckmovers in the game.
Woah, I was not trying to make Boyle look bad in any way. I feel like we always struggle with our bottom 6. We have a stacked top 6 even if they are slow. But our bottom 6 has always had trouble. Boyle is a great offensive defenceman who can run the PP. But I think we could get rid of him for more offense.
sharks getting hosed... if and for any reason we trade boyle is for a speedy top 6 winger... not a for sure not going anywhere 3rd liner... no thanks and never again... honestly only player would be neal and i doubt boyle + would get him... maybe a boyle clowe trade but i doubt pens do that because they would probably want pavs and i wouldnt throw pavs in on that trade...
