Boyle started 29.8% of his shifts in the defensive zone, and ended in the offensive zone 50.8% of the time.

So, yeah, Boyle is pretty much better than Mitchell ever was at that.

Boyle-Callahan is a great defensive pairing up front. Nystrom isn't a third liner, I would prefer to have someone else in that spott.
