Rumor: Pittsburgh has their eye on Blues top-6 forward?
No surprise but the media in Canada is speculating about Brad Boyes heading to Pittsburgh again.
CBC Sports’ Jeff Marek tweeted yesterday that the Pens have been eying Boyes ever since he showed great chemistry with Sidney Crosby at the World Championships, speculating that Pittsburgh is targeting him again.
While Marek is getting somewhere that the Penguins have been eyeing Boyes for sometime, the two sides have not been engaged in trade talks, multiple sources tell me.
Any talk of a Staal for Boyes swap can be dis-regarded immediately.
The Brad Boyes for Jordan Staal rumors even brought some laughs from the media this morning at today’s pre-game skates.
Boyes, 27, had 33 goals last season. He’s a dynamic offensive player but he’s very one dimensional. He had a plus/minus of -20 last year
