BRIAN BOYLE RUMORS & GOSSIP

A look at Jesper Fast’s call up and the Rangers line combinations

On Monday, Jesper Fast was called up by the New York Rangers. The move followed the demotion of JT Miller (and Vigneault’s pointy comments about said player). Once he recovered from a high-ankle sprain, Fast became one of the Hartford Wolf Pack’s most consistent players. His call up was warranted, but the move made sense for a number of other reasons. I’ve argued that Miller...

Rangers Free Agency Predictions: Brian Boyle

Is this Boyle’s last season in a blueshirt? One of the most heated debate topics among Rangers fans is the enigma that is Brian Boyle. If you were to ask 20 Rangers fans how they felt about Boyle, 10 would tell you he’s a valuable asset to the team who provides a lot of grit and heart, and 10 would tell you that he is an abomination of a player with dicks for fingers who plays...

Boyle Hopes to Re-sign With Rangers

Last night was another example of how important Brian Boyle is to the success of the Rangers. A game after Alain Vigneault foolishly took him off the fourth line in an attempt to find a match with Martin St. Louis, Boyle was back on Dominic Moore’s wing back checking, forechecking and maintaining puck possession in the Hurricanes end. Boyle will be an unrestricted free agent this...

Rangers Want to Wait Till Offseason to Talk Boyle Extension

If Glen Sather has proven anything this season it’s that he’s never in a hurry to get his free agents signed to an extension. And now it looks like we can add Brian Boyle to the list (via New York Post)… “I’m also using my contract situation as motivation,” Boyle explained. “I tried to see what was up [regarding an extension], and they wanted to push it back, so being...

Should the Rangers retain Brian Boyle?

(Scott Levy/NHLI/Getty Images) With the regular season coming to an end in a few short weeks speculation will increase as to whether Brian Boyle should be retained or not. For the right price, Glen Sather should absolutely keep Boyle – for the short term. It may be Boyle’s demands that scupper any extension with New York, but from a pure skill perspective he still fills multiple...

Time to move Brian Boyle?

Photo credit: Christopher Pasatieri Often it is the smaller, less heralded moves that make the difference in playoff races. So as the Rangers approach the trade deadline in good form, but still with flaws, should they make any additions? In most cases you have to give to receive, and if the Rangers want to make a real upgrade to their team they will need to consider moving a current...

Stay or Go: Brian Boyle

When Dave and the staff here at Blue Seat Blogs first conjured up the concept of “Stay or Go” posts, they were originally meant to be for current roster players on the verge of free agency. Although Boyle isn’t a free agent this offseason — his deal is up next year — I think it’s worth discussing moving the big fella given our cap issues and some of our roster needs...

Don’t expect Boyle to be moved any time soon

(Scott Levy/NHLI/Getty Images) As Brian Boyle continues to sit in the press box, there have been some rumblings about trading him for some defensive depth. There’s some sound logic behind this, as the Rangers desperately need a sixth defenseman capable of 10-15 minutes a night, and Brian Boyle appears to be an asset that has seen a rookie take his roster spot. It makes sense honestly...

Player Review: Brian Boyle

Prior to the start of the 2011-12 season, center Brian Boyle had developed himself into a trustworthy and reliable role player for the New York Rangers. His contributions in all areas of the ice built themselves up as the years went by, as did his offensive numbers. Boyle was then handed a $1.7 million contract to re-sign with the Blueshirts last summer when he became a restricted...

Rangers center Boyle on ice for morning skate

New York Rangers center Brian Boyle was on the ice Monday morning, a positive development in his efforts to return to the ice following an April 21 concussion. Boyle has not played since the fifth game of his team's Eastern Conference quarterfinal series against the Ottawa Senators, when Senators forward Chris Neil delivered a hard check that New York head coach John Tortorella...
