Boyle: GP: 71 G: 20 A: 12 P: 32 PIM: 67 HITS: 203 FO: 48.3%
Betts: GP: 65 G: 5 A: 7 P: 12 PIM: 6 HITS: 69 FO: 50.7%
I think the stats this season show Boyle is head and shoulders above Betts. No question. Those are very respectable third line numbers that compare to and exceed those of just about any third liner in the league.
And he's got jam.
