Report: Rangers sign RFA Brian Boyle to a three-year contract

Andrew Gross is tweeting that the Rangers have avoided arbitration with restricted free agent Brian Boyle and signed him to a three-year contract worth $5.1 million or a cap hit of $1.7M per year.

More to follow. …


My take:

Though I’m sure the coach and the team and Boyle himself would like to see similar or more goal production, the fact of the matter is he’s become a good, solid hockey player and contributor on the ice and in the room.

So if he scores 14 and kills penalties well and checks the opponents’ top line and brings a physical presence, don’t go all nutso on him.

He might get more goals. He might not.
