Thats a lot of money for a guy like Boyle. I'm not to sure about this signing - 5 million/year would have been too much, but 6.6? Yikes. But he is an offensive threat back there, they just need someone dependable as a defence partner to back him up in his own zone.
Anyhow, this should pretty much settle Brad Richards
situation - can't keep all those massive salaries around. Lets see what the Bolts can get for him.
