Report:  Dan Boyle to the San Jose Sharks

from Darren Dreger of TSN,

The Vancouver Canucks are one of three teams in the running for veteran defenseman, Dan Boyle.

Sources tell TSN the Canucks, San Jose Sharks and Philadelphia Flyers are the three teams Boyle is considering, however he has yet to waive his no-trade clause to clear the way for a trade.

The belief is Boyle will consent to trade at some point today and will select the team of his choice, however until he officially waives his no-trade, there is always a chance the Lightning’s efforts to move him may be scuttled.

Update 10:20am ET (alanah): Link above has entirely changed the content—

Sources tell TSN that Tampa Bay Lightning defenceman Dan Boyle has waived his no-trade clause and has agreed to a trade to the San Jose Sharks.

The paper work confirming Boyle has consented is being processed right now and once signed by Boyle, it will clear the way for the Sharks and Lightning to complete the deal.

In return for the 31 year old veteran defenseman,  its believed Tampa will receive a package that will include 23 old defenseman Matt Carle, a 1st round pick, a prospect and a 4th round pick.

Sources say defenseman Brad Lukowich is also part of the deal going to San Jose.

Update 10:51am ET: From Lightning Strikes

“Yes,” Boyle’s agent George Bazos said. “That’s the way we’re going. We went through the whole process and picked a [place] he’s very happy to be. If the Lightning can go ahead and [consummate] a trade, then Dan is very happy with that.”
