Boyle Asked to Waive NTC

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Lightning Strikes,

Things all of a sudden seem to be moving fast with the Lightning and Dan Boyle as the Lightning defenseman confirmed the team has asked him to waive his no-trade clause.

“They have asked me to waive my no-trade clause,” Boyle said, “but that’s all I can say right now.”

It was unclear if the Lightning gave Boyle a destination.

Update 2:11pm ET (alanah): Erik Erlendsson at his Tampa Tribune blog, notes this:

Here’s an indicator as to what the Lightning has in mind of what they fully intend to do with Dan Boyle. If you go to the Lightning homepage during the introduction of the new faces (and a couple of familiar ones), Boyle is not among those listed, which also includes Gary Roberts, Ryan Malone along with the likes of Vinny Lecavalier and Marty St. Louis. But no mention of Boyle.
