And if you really can't see that, then I have to question your knowledge of the defensive side of hockey.
There are a lot of players that are a lot better than Boyle that aren't nearly as good as him defensively. Besides he doesn't have to be better than Boyle defensively. If his line is in the other team's zone rather than what Boyle likes to do (be pinned in his zone and block a ton of shots) it's as good or better defensively than what Boyle does.
