A 41 point center, signed for another year, for a 2nd round pick? That's a helluva deal. Ok, what's wrong with this guy?

Thought exactly the same. Now Connolly will be moved for a 2nd or 3rd rounder...no much difference. Classic Regier at deadline.

$4 million cap hit. We're stacked on RW now and Kassian coming up. possible trade of one of wingers tomorrow. Possibly Grier?

Meh, I like that Buffalo is actually making changes in the top 6, but Boyes isn't the player he used to be. I don't think he'll make our offense much better than it already is. Only giving up a 2nd rounder isn't a horrible price though.

IMO his biggest problem is that he's too much like a Sabres top 6 forward. He'll have a couple games in a given month where he looks like a true top line forward, then every other game you won't notice him at all. I haven't watched much Blues hockey this year, but they were one of the main Western teams I tried to follow last year, and Boyes always seemed like the most inconsistent top six forward on their team.

Except Boyes is not a rental.

Boyes is under 30. And he had 43 goals in 2008. Great trade for Buff.

Boyes for a 2nd? Has to be more they gave up, no? Now this opens up Liles and Paul Stastny for a bigger deal. Regardless, Darcy did real good here.

This is a very good trade, I'd say its in our favour.

Boyes has 22 pts since the start of the new year (25 GP).

You guys, a trade for Brad Richards always was and will be completely out of the question. Maybe if Pegula wants to spend wads of cash they could sign him as a UFA but absolutely no way they are trading for him this deadline.

Anyone have the scouting report on Boyes? What's his game like?
