Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune,
After hearing rave reviews on the Lightning — not to mention living in Tampa — Boyle opted to join forces with Callahan once again and signed a three-year contract with Tampa Bay worth $6 million.
Boyle was on his honeymoon in Maui when he signed his new deal, and with wife Lauren Bedford, a model in consideration for the next Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, hailing from Orlando, it didn’t take long to sign on the dotted line.
“It was always something I had my eye on if it came up, and me and my wife talked about it — if down the road, wouldn’t that be a nice place to play,’’ Boyle said. “Lucky for us, it happened two days later and we jumped on it.’’
There was plenty of interest from other teams — Boyle had an offer on the table from the Maple Leafs — to sign the 6-foot-7, 240-pound center who helped the Rangers reach the Stanley Cup finals last season.
