That's because Boyle is so huge. Once he reached the NHL he had to start playing with players closer to his size. This usually happens with players that have a major strength in one area, but are not so good in other areas. Just look at Stepan. He doesn't look as dominant now because he's playing with smarter and more talented players and he isn't that amazing in other facets of the game to fall back on.
