You can find this in your 'issues' list?

I can create new boards, but not with the filters you want. 
There is no 'active user' filter. (i.e. "me" or so)

I can create lists filtered on label, assignee or milestone.

I could create a label 'unassigned' to filter on. but then we would need to apply that to
all new issues. This can be automated. Then I could use it to add an 'unassigned' list. 
The label would need to be removed when a user is assigned to an issue. This
can probably also be automated.

They are working on a named filter system. When that exists, more things
will be possible:
