Buzz: Dan Boyle Doesn’t Want To Leave SJ/Could Ian White Be An Option?

1:20PM: The Penguins have acquired defenseman Douglas Murray from the Sharks.

The Price, according to Bob McKenzie, is two second round picks.


At ESPN Insider, Craig Custance spoke with someone close to Dan Boyle who said that he doesn’t want to leave San Jose.

Custance added that the Boyle you are getting is 36 years old, but his cap hit reflects Boyle from when he was 30.

With all the mileage he has, a scout told Custance that “if he was what he was, he wouldn’t be available.”

THIS SECTION is all about Boyle.


Custance says that a more ideal fit for the Rangers would be Ian White from Detroit.

White, according to Custance, is “not a guy who necessarily want in your top four but has offensive skill that would contribute to the Rangers power play.”

He notes that White is a UFA at the end of the season and the Wings have depth on defense that they could be willing to move.

White, 28, has one goal and two assist in 19 games for the Red Wings this season.

He had seven goals and 25 assists for the Red Wings last season and has a cap hit of $2.875.

White is averaging 19:50 per game and he averaged close to 23 minutes per game last year.
