If Lightning Want Boyle, They Better Act Fast
NHL Rumors: Boyle and the Lightning
Dan Boyle has been linked to the Tampa Bay Lightning in some recent rumors and now that today is the start of free agency, the rumor mill is only picking up speed.
Boyle used to play for Tampa Bay in 2008 and then he was traded to the San Jose Sharks. According to SB Nation, now that he’s on the open market, plenty of teams are looking at him.
Lightning GM Steve Yzerman is rumored to be intrigued but the most recent news this morning suggests that the Detroit Red Wings want him even more.
According to Dale Lamontagne of The Hockey Report, Detroit is going all in for Boyle.
Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press: ”The Wings will be offering Dan Boyle a two-year contract in the $11 million range.”
