Boynton on Waivers.

Translation.

Quote:
Marc Chouinard At least three players were placed at the ballot in the national League Wednesday. Thus, in Vancouver, Canucks made available to the other teams, the attacker Marc Chouinard.

In Phoneix, the Coyotes made the same thing with the center Kevyn Adams and the defender Nick Boynton.

In 42 parts the year spent, Chouinard marked two goals and obtained as many master keys. For its part, Adams marked three goals and nine master keys in 33 meetings.

As for Boynton, it registered two goals and nine master keys in 59 matches. It should be provided that the contracts of all these players are repurchased by their team respective if they are not claimed. At the Canadian, Jassen Cullimore and Tony Salmelainen were not claimed with the ballot.
We better get on that.

how is the waiver order determined in the offseason?


btw- Boynton has 2 years left on 2.9 million.


Id rather pick him up then Souray. He will bring the toughness, and then we are still free to sign a point producers that are not as liable in there own zone. I know Boynton had a bad year, but look where he was.

I think there is reward in them thar hills.

All the GMs look at the list, and those that don't go into immediate narcolepsy get first dibs.

With the Kings planning on making a run for Stuart and Hannan, I don't see them picking up Boynton off waivers.

13.19 If only one Club makes a claim for the Player on whom Waivers have been
requested, such Player shall be transferred to that Club. In the event that more than one Club makes a claim for such Player, he shall be transferred to the claiming Club having earned the lowest percentage of possible points in the League standing at the time of the request for Waivers or, if Waivers are requested outside the playing season, then to the Club having earned the lowest percentage of possible points in the preceding season's schedule of Regular Season Games. If the successful Waiver claim is made before November 1st then the priority shall be determined by the final standing in the League's Regular Season schedule in the preceding season.

Assuming the Kings can sign both then holes are filled. However, Blake had surgery, Miller wont be back due to wanting a 2 year deal which will be close to what Boynton gets now.


Lubo - JJ (keeping in mind is a rookie) - Blake -

and then its a big gaping hole.


Plus picking up Boynton assures the Kings of not signing Modry. So how can it not make sense?

What about Boynton instead of Hannan:

Johnson-Blake
Visnovsky-Stuart
(Piskula, Petiot, Harrold)-Boynton

$2.9 for 2 years could be more affordable and less of a long term commitment than what it would take to sign Hannan, and it's guaranteed RIGHT NOW. What if we wait on Hannan and he decided to sign elsewhere?

So we're second in line. It's hard not to see DL make an attempt at this with his whole "maximize assets" talk.

From TSN:

"Nick Boynton - D
Age:28
HT: 6-2
WT: 211

Assets:
Plays a physical game and loves a heavy workload. Is extremely reliable in the defensive zone. Is a very smooth skater and excellent puck-handler. Possesses a hard, accurate shot from the point.

Flaws:
May not put up the points expected of him at the NHL level, unless he starts hitting the net with his shots more frequently.

Career potential: No. 1 defenseman."

The other worry with Boynton is his issues with health and staying healthy.

Somebody better find Modry and correct that problem . Boynton is a much better option.

if Boynton is such a great pick-up, why would the 2nd worst team in the league put him on waivers? this is a guy to stay away from.

I dont think its an issue.

He missed part of last season with a fractured foot but has been injury free the rest of his pro career.

Prior year he only played 54 games but that was because of contract issues.

Salary-cutting? There have been rumours the Yotes want to make some kind of FA splash and perhaps Boynton is the only asset they can really cut free at this point.

The guy may no longer be a projected #1, but I certainly wouldn't mind him in a Kings uniform.

Why would they sign him to 3 x 2.9 to begin with?

perhaps it is salary cutting but you don't put a top 4 defenseman on waivers unless he has "issues" or is playing like a 5-6 defenseman. something is wrong with this picture.

I imagine Phoenix is prepping to take a run at Ryan Smyth and maybe Bertuzzi as well.

Bert and Jovo back together - "reunited and it feels so good"


That does make a lot of sense. I dont think Phoenix is going to have the money to spend to make a splash and keep players like Boynton.


Now this is assuming that this is even a correct story considering RDS is the only one reporting it yet.

Normally, you'd be right, but this off-season the waiver wire has seen several players of much higher-quality than usual dumped by teams citing strictly salary-cutting motivations.

Maybe this phenomenon will reveal another, unforeseen, advantage of finishing so low in the standings.

Management told fans in a forum last night they were not targeting any of the big names.
