Flyers Reportedly Interested in Sharks Dan Boyle

Tim Panaccio reports that the Flyers are interested in San Jose Sharks defenseman Dan Boyle.

Boyle, 36, is possibly on the market depending on San Jose's mindset heading into the trade deadline on April 3. He has one more year left on his six-year, $40 million deal, meaning he would have a cap hit of $6.6 million next season.

Boyle has four goals and nine assists in 28 games this season.

TCL Round 1 Staff Predictions: St. Louis Blues vs. San Jose Sharks

 

 

( 2 ) ST. LOUIS BLUES vs. ( 7 ) SAN JOSE SHARKS

It's still uncertain whether the San Jose Sharks have shed their reputation of being chokers. They made the conference finals the last two seasons, but lost pretty badly both times. Considering every year lately seems to be "their year", even the conference finals seems like it's not enough. But this year is different. They haven't exactly been dominating the west as they usually do, in fact they barely squeaked into the playoffs. But the pressure is still there even if it might not seem like it, and people's jobs will more than likely be on the line if they "choke" yet again.&...

Game Day: Phoenix Coyotes @ San Jose Sharks

The Coyotes have packed their bags and set off en route to San Jose, as tonight marks the start of a five-game road trip.  They dropped their last contest against the Canadiens in overtime Thursday night, as a Josh Gorges slapshot found its way behind goaltender Mike Smith at the 1:45 mark of the extra frame.  The Sharks, who took the last game against their division rival Coyotes by a score of 6-3, are 8-1-1 in their last ten games and sport the best shots-per-game ratio of the NHL with an average of 36.


 San Jose is also stellar on the power play at home (30%, a league-best rating).  That fateful home opener on October 8th saw the Sharks capitalize three tim...

Joe Pavelski: The Greatest Hockey Player of All Time?

p { margin-bottom: 0.08in; }

The Sharks traded for Brent Burns and Martin Havlat in the offseason. So what? The real story of this young season has been the incredible play of Joe Pavelski. Playing last year largely as the third line center, Pavelski tallied a career high 66 points. It was that sort of play that made Devin Setoguchi expendable in the offseason, allowing GM Doug Wilson to acquire the top 4 defenseman this team truly needed.

 

This year, Pavelski has taken Setoguchi's spot as the right winger on the top line with Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau (who has rece...

Pairing One: Boyle-Murray

Why mess with success, right? While this pair was obviously not always up to the challenge of stopping the Sedins on every shift, they still compliment each other very well. With the addition of Brent Burns, they will not be asked to play as many minutes each night. Boyle isn't getting any younger, so this sh...
