There's reportedly "a very slim to no chance" that Dan Boyle signs with the New York Islanders.
Andy Strickland reports that the veteran defenseman wants to play for a contending squad at this stage in his career. However, he still plans to give New York a fair look before he is able to test the market on July 1. The Islanders acquired Boyle's rights from San Jose for a conditional 2015 fifth-round draft pick last week.
