Lou Venditti- Brian Boyle
The New York Rangers are going to shed some veteran leadership this offseason. However, there is one veteran leader they should pursue for a reunion.
Brian Boyle will be a free agent this summer after spending time with the Toronto Maple Leafs and Tampa Bay Lightning in2016-2017. Boyle, who will turn 33 come December, spent five seasons with the Rangers before leaving in free agency to the Lightning in 2014.
Boyle is a gritty fourth line centerman, and an upgrade on the Rangers current (former) grit-man Tanner Glass.
He isn’t a huge scoring factor, with 13 goals and 12 assists this past season. However, he’s led the teams he’s played for. Brian Boyle would make a great re-addition to the Rangers.
