I hope Bolland capitalizes on the opportunity to be a top-six forward. If he does, we can get a real nice defenseman. Not that we currently can't, but it won't screw us for next year.
I think they brought in Morrison to be the 2nd line centre, or at least, see if he can do a better job than Kruger/Pirri. If he can't, then maybe Bolland moves back up.. but I think you'll see Morrison with Sharp/Hossa for a little while, to see if any chemistry can be formed.
