I think Boyle is pretty comparable to Antropov. Antropov is stronger on his skates than Boyle. Maybe I'm wrong on Antropov as I haven't seen him much but when they were the same age I feel they were certainly comparable.
I'm confused as how you think Boyle is a very good skater for his size when more guys taking a regular shift at his size are better skaters or at worst his equal. Not everyone that size can be above average. Where are all the skaters worse than Boyle when most of the guys you listed are better skaters?
I guess we will have to agree to disagree in regards to Boyle's skating. He's good decent top-end speed, poor acceleration, pretty poor edges and poor balance for someone his size. That is my opinion of course.
