Yeah , Gonchar does have more years of very good offense compare to Boyle , but as far as ''Overall Game'' I would give it to Boyle.He is a bit stronger defensively and definitely a better leader than Gonchar ever was.That doesn't mean Boyle had a better career but it means he had a better overall game , which is what Dreakmur tried to argue in favor of Gonchar.
