Boyle just finished the final-year of a three-year deal that had a cap hit of $1.7 million.
- On playing for a new contract, “it was probably more on my mind during the season and maybe trade deadline. Things happen and deals are up and guys get traded and in a salary cap league different things happen and I am trying to do my best and I hope they want me to stay because I love it here.”
- Do you want to say, “absolutely, 100%. I have made that pretty clear. It’s close enough to home and my mom is here now and my dad was at game four. A lot of pros to it and this group here.”
Boyle said that he is looking for an expanded role in his new contract but Alain Vigneault said that if he were to stay with the Rangers, Boyle would stay in his fourth line role.
