Rangers Make Free Agent Splash With Boyle

News: Dan Boyle has signed a two-year deal with the Rangers, according to TSN.ca. The deal is reportedly worth $9 million.
Analysis: Dan Boyle is 37, but this might be a good landing place for him with the Rangers. The team came close to a title last season, but could have benefited from an extra guy who knows how to run a power play. Boyle should round out a very nice top four on the Blueshirts' blue line, along with budding star Ryan McDonagh, and the reliable Dan Girardi and Marc Staal.

Bolts In Hunt for UFA Boyle?

News: The Lightning are in the mix for Dan Boyle's services, reports Tampa Bay Times.
Analysis: The Wings, Leafs and Rangers are also apparently courting him, so this isn't a done deal by any means. He'd sure be a nice, right-shot option to help accelerate the power play.

Isles' Boyle Draws Free Agent Interest

News: The Red Wings, Rangers and Maple Leafs are thought to be interested in signing Dan Boyle, sportsnet.ca reports.
Analysis: Dan Boyle isn't expected to sign with the Islanders, who now hold his NHL rights. Though the blueliner turns 38 in July, he's coming off a season in which he notched 36 points in 75 games with the Sharks and retains utility with his ability in the transition game and on the power play.

Dan Boyle

Boyle Won't Sign With The Islanders

News: Dan Boyle has decided not to negotiate with the Islanders and will test free agency, according to the Islanders Point Blank.
Analysis: The Isles traded a fifth-round pick in next Friday's draft to acquire Dan Boyle's negotiating rights and now will look to flip those rights to a team he might be more willing to sign with. The Isles could certainly use the veteran puck moving defenseman but at this point in his career he may be looking for a team that is more of a Stanley Cup contender.

Boyle Unlikely To Sign With The Islanders

News: Dan Boyle has yet to discuss contract talks with the Islanders, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: Apparently Dan Boyle will let the Islanders know by the end of this week whether or not he is interested in opening up contract talks with the team. These are not exactly the words of someone who sounds interested in moving to Long Island. Boyle would have more than a couple of suitors if he elects to pursue free agency and may decide that he would rather play for a team a little closer to Stanley Cup contention.

Sharks Deal Boyle To Islanders

News: Dan Boyle's rights were traded to the Islanders for a 2015 conditional fifth-round pick, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: In a similar fashion to the Jaroslav Halak trade, the Islanders will have the first priority to sign Dan Boyle before the free agency period begins. The team's chances of retaining Boyle would seem unlikely given that the defenseman will turn 38 years old in July and would presumably prefer to play for a contender, but the Islanders will do their best to persuade him otherwise. The conditional pick would turn into a fourth-rounder if Boyle ends up signing.

Sharks' Boyle Won't Return To Team In 2014-15

News: Dan Boyle will not return with the Sharks for the 2014-15 season, CSN's Brodie Brazil reports.
Analysis: At 37 years old, he may be at the end of the road, but if he is able to continue his career as a defenseman, it won't be with San Jose.

Boyle And Sharks Have Uncertain Future

News: Dan Boyle finished the postseason with four assists, no goals, and a minus-1 rating.
Analysis: Dan Boyle has had a long career of being a stalwart defenseman, but at 37 he's getting up there in years and had a number of injuries to fight through this season. It's hard to believe he'll have a bounce back season next year, though he showed flashes of his old self this year and was playing injured. It's possible, but first he'll have to find out what jersey he'll be wearing. His contract is up and there is speculation that San Jose isn't going to make an offer.

Sharks' Boyle Grabs Third Postseason Assist

News: Dan Boyle had an assist, four shots, a minus-1 rating, and 23:35 of ice time in a Game 3 OT win over the Kings.
Analysis: Dan Boyle has three assists in the series now and has been logging some big minutes in round one.

Sharks' Boyle: Pair Of Assists In Game 2

News: Dan Boyle had two assists, a hit, and three blocked shots in Sunday's Game 2 win over LA.
Analysis: Dan Boyle finished the regular season creating offense like you expect him to, so it's good to see him putting points on the board after not registering any in the opening game.

Sharks' Boyle: Nine Points In Last 10 Games

News: Dan Boyle picked up two assists in Saturday's win over Phoenix. He ended the season with at least one point in eight of his last 10 games and nine points (four goals, five assists) in that span.
Analysis: That late-season push brought his season total to 36 points, one of his lowest full-season totals of his career. He's 37 and on the downside of his career, but he'll be instrumental to the Sharks' success this postseason. Just don't overestimate his value for the 2014-15 draft.

Sharks' Boyle Lights Lamp Again

News: Dan Boyle scored his 12th goal of the season in Friday's 5-1 rout of the visiting Avalanche.
Analysis: After frustrating fantasy owners to no end by failing to find the back of the net in 29 straight contests, Dan Boyle has turned things around with four goals in his last seven games. The 37-year-old's 34 points and minus-9 rating are his worst in five full seasons with the Sharks, but he's looked much better of late after playing through a thumb injury earlier in the year.

Boyle Continues Point Streak For Sharks

News: Dan Boyle had an assist, two penalty minutes and a minus-1 rating in Thursday's win over the Kings.
Analysis: That assist brings Dan Boyle's point streak to six games. He's got three goals and three assists over that stretch -- a welcome change for owners who have weathered this season's slumps.

Sharks' Boyle Has Goals In Three Straight

News: Dan Boyle recorded a goal, an assist, a plus-1 rating, two penalty minutes and four shots in Tuesday's win over Edmonton.
Analysis: Dan Boyle has been on fire. He has goals in three straight and points in five straight, with three goals and three assists over that five-game stretch.

Boyle Scores Again For Sharks

News: Dan Boyle scored and had five shots through 22:41 of ice time in Saturday's loss to the Avalanche.
Analysis: After a 29-game goal drought Dan Boyle has goals in back-to-back games and is riding a four-game points streak.

Sharks' Boyle Scores, Ends Drought

News: Dan Boyle scored and had two penalty minutes in 20:51 during Thursday's loss to the Jets.
Analysis: That goal ended a 29-game drought for Dan Boyle, who was visibly relieved. That drought-ender also extends his point streak to three games.

Sharks' Boyle Adds Assist In Loss

News: Dan Boyle had an assist and a team-leading five shots in a shootout loss to the Flames on Monday.
Analysis: Dan Boyle is still logging big minutes, but his point production has dropped off into the abyss. He hasn't scored in the last 28 games and has just seven assists in that stretch. A nagging injury may have something to do with that. Boyle's a horse for playing through a tough season, but fantasy owners may want to consider that his ailments from earlier in the season haven't stopped nagging him.

Sharks' Boyle Continues Producing

News: Dan Boyle assisted on both San Jose goals in Friday's loss to Buffalo, giving him three assists in the last two games.
Analysis: Dan Boyle has the capability to contribute offensively but the Sharks wouldn't mind seeing a bit more from their veteran puck-mover. He's going to see plenty of scoring chances, many of which will come with the team's elite group of forwards, so those small slumps might not last as long.

Sharks' Boyle Shakes Slump

News: Dan Boyle piled up an assist, a plus-1 rating, two penalty minutes, two shots, and a blocked shot in Thursday's blowout win over the Flyers.
Analysis: Dan Boyle entered the break riding a 10-game stretch without a point and a minus-5 rating over the past seven games. That can be partially attributed to the fact that he was playing with an injured thumb. He may be back to form now, but everyone looks pretty good in a 7-3 win.

Boyle Playing With Injured Thumb For Sharks

News: Dan Boyle, who was a plus-1 with two shots in Friday's game against Columbus, played the last five games with an injured thumb, according to CSN Bay Area.
Analysis: That injury, sustained January 29 against Edmonton, may account for why Dan Boyle has had a hard time getting out of his slump. He's entering the break having not recorded a point in 10 games. He hasn't scored in 14. He's on pace for 31 points this season, the lowest total he's had when playing at least 50 games since the 2000-01 season.

Boyle Minus-3 In Sharks' Loss

News: Dan Boyle was a team-worst minus-3 through 22:37 of ice time in Monday's loss to Philadelphia.
Analysis: Dan Boyle is trending in the wrong directions for fantasy owners. He's a minus-6 over the last five games. He hasn't recorded a point in eight games and hasn't scored in 12. His minutes and shots are still solid — though not outstanding.

Boyle Creating Offense For San Jose

News: Dan Boyle had a power-play goal in a 4-1 win over Detroit on Thursday.
Analysis: Despite it being a 4-1 win, Dan Boyle still managed to be a minus-1 on the night. Boyle has been up and down all season, but is still providing some offensive boost when the Sharks need it most.

Boyle Logs Big Minutes For Sharks In Loss

News: Dan Boyle had an assist and a minus-1 rating in 24:39 of ice time in Tuesday's loss to Nashville.
Analysis: Dan Boyle has crossed the 20-minute mark in the last eight games. The Sharks is leaning on the veteran blueliner as they battle through a wave of injuries to their forwards.

Dan Boyle

Boyle Nets One In Sharks Loss

News: Dan Boyle scored and was a minus-2 in 22:58 of ice time in a loss to Anaheim on Tuesday.
Analysis: Dan Boyle's early season scoring pace has subsided and expectations should be lowered a bit. This isn't likely to be a record-breaking year offensively for the 37-year old d-man. He's got just two goals in his last 21 games.

Sharks Boyle: Five Points In Last Three Games

News: Dan Boyle scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's loss to Nashville. The points extended his current streak to three games and five points, including four assists.
