Per @FriedgeHNIC: "it’s believed the #Isles have made at least one offer that would make (Boychuk) the highest-paid player on the roster."When asked by Stan Fischler if he would be back next season following last nights victory, Boychuk said with a smile, "Hopefully."

I am very curious to see what the team ends up giving Boychuk as far as a new contract goes. Initially, I thought that 6 million per season would get it done. However, with Leddy getting 5.5 per season in his deal I am not sure 6 will do it for Boychuk. His brothers seem to be confident in him remaining with the team. For Islander fans sake, myself included, I hope they are correct.
