Helm re-signed

I have been looking into alternatives. Brad Boyes is listed on NHL Numbers as a center, now this is a typo or mistake, as he plays RW, but looking into him, it turns out he took almost as many face-offs as some of the centermen in Buffalo, and maintained 47% in the circle. He is UFA, has seen 40 goals, and 70 points. His last contract was 4M, I wonder if he would be a fill in center, 2/3 line forward, signed for say 2.5M

Not a bad idea. He's coming off of BY FAR his worst statistical season (8 goals?), so 2.5 may be enough. But he's still only 30, can take faceoffs, and has (in the past, anyways) a killer one-timer on the PP.

Boyes at 2.5 IMO is far less of a risk than Sturm was at the same number a year ago.
