Turns out that winning can be a good thing for some players. The Chicago Blackhawks brought back a member of their Stanley Cup winning team at a big discount compared to what he was making before. Cap Geek has learned that defenseman Nick Boynton has re-signed with the team for one year at the league minimum of $500,000.
To put that into perspective for you, Boynton is taking $1 million less than he made last year with the Blackhawks to stay with the team. Interpret that how you will but either he’s helping the team he won a Stanley Cup with to save some dough or he’s that concerned about landing another job in the NHL with other teams sticking closely to a budget. Either way, it works out great for the Blackhawks as Boynton was the guy who was starting in the Stanley Cup finals after Jordan Hendry fell out of favor as a starter. He’s a cagey veteran and a guy that can be relied upon in a third defensive pairing.
