Love that he's locked up for three years. He's a better player than any 4th liner we've had recently, and he can also move up and play 3rd line as we saw this season. He's physical and versatile at the same time.
Like others said, got to see the dollar amounts, but I don't think it'll be anything outrageous. Sather is very good with signing RFA's before arbitration and giving them money they are actually worth.
He's training again with the figure/power skater Barbara, so with that will most likely come more improvement or at least sustainability. I think he can replicate the season he had last year, but hopefully with more consistency.
outside of last season he had never scored more than 4 goals in an NHL season, or more than 6 points...
last 23 games of last season where he came back down to earth he had 1 goal 2 assists and a -5 (not that i put much stock in the +/- stat)
over 82 games thats 4 goals, and 7 assists....
id call 2 mil a year for 3 years GROSS overpayment.
Agreed. People were comparing Boyle's next contract to Moulson's up until the All Star break. If a legit 30 goal getter is earning $2.4M, Boyle needs to be around 2/3 of that.....tops. I'd like to see it under 1.5M/per with that term.
