No he would not be picked as a center in that scenario. All teams would be looking for a 1st line center.

Change the scenario 8 teams going into the playoffs that all have 1st line centers. They all need to add another center. Dave Bollands phone would be ringing like a mad man.

Bollands value is in the playoffs and defense.

I wouldn't pick him in my top 25 centers because I wouldn't be looking for intangibles. Intangibles clearly have value and sometimes more value than points and statistics.

If he is not in my top 25 and he is not Bolland is in the top 30
