I still want him here, but trading a 5th (possibly 4th) for an impending, 38-year-old UFA... uh huh. Sounds like a Garth Snow move.

How comes?

 

Too old? Or more the fact that KH will probably sign him to a 3 year deal?

I'm up for any improvement of our blue line even if Boyle wouldn't be my first choice I'd definitely take him.

For what?  They've given away all their picks.

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.

0.5ppg from a defensman is exactly what the Wings need. I think age and size probably turns most people off. Actually I think any acquisition that isn't for a star or franchise player is going to disappoint a big chunk of LGW.

I'm going to disagree with you guys and say that he's the kind of short term solution the Wings need before guys like Sproul and Ouellet are #3/4 dmen... he signs for 2 years at 5 a year under a familiar coach and mentors the kids (some North American leadership)

 

Let's not forget that Boyle is a pretty rugged player, at 38 he played more games than most of the Wings roster last year..

I'll bet he does.  Given all the good years he's given San Jose it would be really s***ty of them to trade his rights to a team he's not willing to sign with.  My guess is they had a discussion with him before they pulled the trigger and he gave the ok. 


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

That's one way to look at it, but how many other players have said, "thanks for the interest Garth, but no thanks"?

Another way to look at it is that he's doing SJ the favor and getting something for his rights. He's got no real obligation to sign with the Isles.

Not that I wanted Boyle, I just wish Holland would be more open to trading for players rights; instead of waiting till they become UFA's and missing out.

i just dont see why we wouldnt want a one year upgrade from what we had last season on our 3rd pairing. this would give oullett, sproul and march another year to develop if they need it.

A number of people who post here are pretty pro-Boyle (or just pro veteran, right handed defender). When it comes to the Wings' defensive situation for next season, there are pretty much three trains of thought.

#1: Niskanen! Niskanen!
#2: Sign Boyle for 1-2 seasons and let one of the kids mature on the third pairing.
#3: Let the kids play (Two of Ouellet, Marchenko and/or Sproul up with the Wings)
