I knew Bolland was a huge offensive threat in London... but I've never bothered to check out his stats. He scored at nearly a goal per game pace in his 4th year. And over 2PPG. That's incredible...

I think in Bolland's case, he was adapting to the NHL and trying to find a niche for himself when he first joined. He was good defensively but had a bit to prove offensively. In his healthiest and fullest season in 08-09, he posted 47 points with Ladd and Havlat. Although he's been struck by injury the past couple of years, I think he's come a long way. Given a healthy season, I really do think he could post 55+ points and establish himself as a 2nd line center along with superb defense. I'm excited for him this coming season.
