The Islanders right wing is a former Bruin who will be a free agent this summer. New York is close to the playoff cut line, so a deal might not be easy to make. Boyes spent 2005-06 and most of 2006-07 in Boston and had 69 points in his first season with the Bruins. He has more than 150 career goals and more than 200 career assists.
Several other Islanders players’ names have come up in trade talk and reports, including left wing Matt Moulson and defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky.
