Nick Boynton, originally offered only slightly more than his $1.33 million qualifying offer to rejoin the Bruins, has been offered $1.75 million to play in 2005-06, two sources familiar with both sides of the negotiations confirmed yesterday. But Boynton remains on his father's turf farm in Ontario, not yet satisfied with general manager Mike O'Connell's proposal. ''They had the right to put this to bed at $1.9 million, right off the bat," said Boynton's agent, Anton Thun, noting that the Bruins in July could have picked up the option for this season on Boynton's contract that was negotiated more than two years ago. ''But they didn't, and that's where we are now."
