boyle's checking, reach, and size are better. boyle simply takes up more real estate. against the majority of teams in the league boyle is the better penalty-killer.
cally has way more skill offensively. he's just as physical. he pokes and aggresses better. he's a faster skater(though certainly not "fast"). he's better on an aggressive pk against teams who make high-risk plays on the pp(NJ last season for instance) that lead to odd-man rushes...
that said. i still think boyle. cally's relative skill just can't make up for the space boyle takes up and the reach he has to poke/block.
TBH i could see cally and boyle being butt-buddies on the top PK unit next season.
