Dan Boyle will draw plenty of interest when NHL free agency begins at noon ET on Tuesday, and that will reportedly include multiple multiyear contract offers.
TSN’s Darren Dreger provided a list of potential destinations via Twitter:

Boyle tallied 36 points (12 goals, 24 assists) in 75 games, which was his lowest scoring total in a non-lockout season since 2007-08.
With that said, he’s still a quality power-play quarterback, possesses a powerful right-handed shot from the point and provides excellent leadership and experience as a former Stanley Cup champion.
The 36-year-old veteran spent the last six seasons with the San Jose Sharks, where he tallied 35 or more points five times.
Boyle will be one of the best options for several contenders looking to add depth, experience and offensive skill to their blue line.
