True, but we don't know what (if anything) might come after Boyle. Whether it be Alfie, a trade for Kesler, Edler or whatever. The pieces get added one by one generally not all at the same time.
Agreed. We don't know. Although I'm certainly not banking on anything else. Signing old washed up vets is Holland's MO. Trading for impact players like Kesler and Edler isn't. If he signs Boyle and then goes on to do grab a couple first rate players in their prime, I won't have anything to complain about. However, history has shown Holland signs guys like Boyle in lieu of making impact moves, not in addition to making impact moves. If he signs Boyle, I sure hope this will be the exception.
