What you described about Boyle fits shutdown and energy to a T and he also produces on the upper end of the spectrum for third liners.
What in the world are you talking about. Big time offensive presence is nothing I ever said. Consistent offensive zone presence in what I said. Not big time. Not offensive. Consistent offensive zone. As in, noticeable in a positive way on the majority of shifts in the offensive zone. He doesn't need to score. He just needs to do positive things more consistently. Remotely different concepts.

Also, he didn't produce at the upper end of 3rd liners last year. 86 centers had more points on the season than he did.
