Dan Boyle chatted with the media today...
from Josh Thomson of the Journal News,
On why he chose the Rangers: "That's where I wanted to go. That's the simplest way I can put it. When I found out I was done in San Jose, that was the team that jumped out. I played in Florida and California, two non-traditional hockey markets. Those places were great, but I wanted to experience something different."
On the pressure of playing in New York: "I enjoy the pressure. You have to prepare for that. I've already been forewarned. I've been in pressure situations before - Stanley Cup finals, gold medal games - so I'm used to that."
On if he considered the Islanders, who traded for his rights: "It's not so much that I didn't want to go to some of these places. it's just that I wanted to go to the New York Rangers."
"At the end of the day, I wanted to be on an Original Six team, and the Rangers were the team I wanted to go to."
