Tampa Bay Lightning

Boyle has been asked to waive no-trade clause

From Damien Cristodero of the St. Petersburg Times:

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.

Owner Oren Koules could not be reached but owner Len Barrie said simply, “We’re working on some things. … When these things happen for a player, the team wants to do it in the right way and make it easiest for the player. Dan is a good guy and a good guy in the organization.”

It seems like a formality that Dan Boyle will be playing elsewhere in 2008/09.
