I think it would take a lot more than that. Paul Gaustad cost a 1st rounder last year.

I agree it would take more than Ebbet + 3rd. But anymore and it's not worth it.

And just because Gaustad returned a 1st rounder, does not make him worth one. Better players were available (and traded) for much less.

A 1st for Boyle is ridiculous and the Canucks shouldn't be interested if that's the price.

Just a bump to this thread, with Boyle again a healthy scratch as Richards draws back in after getting hit into the boards.

Boyle scratched ... again

Brian Boyle was indeed a healthy scratch for Friday's 3-2 loss to the Senators, coach John Tortorella confirmed after the game.

Although the hulking centerman earned a spot back in the lineup after serving a three-game stint as a healthy scratch earlier this season, he appears to be back in Tortorella's dog house.

"Other guys were playing better," Tortorella said of his decision to have Boyle watch from the press box.

Although it was assumed that Richards' return to the lineup would mean eitherMicheal Haley or Stu Bickel would sit, Boyle was the odd man out. Tortorella opted for rookie J.T. Miller and Jeff Halpern as his third and fourth-line centers and, once again, Boyle's role with the team appears nebulous.

Tortorella said he has not liked Boyle's game of late.

"We're hoping Brian becomes part of it," Tortorella said, "but he certainly has to do more than what he has."

The 28-year-old Boyle, who had 11 goals and 26 points in 82 games for the Rangers last season, has been limited to only one assist in 19 games for the Rangers this year.

His point production isn't there, but he's still a big guy who hits a lot and is good at faceoffs. I'd take him over Pinizzotto anyday but we'd have to give up a couple of pieces for him. Nothing major though, I don't think I'd change my original proposal unless we could get away with a 3rd instead of a 2nd.
