Sharp is a natural center in the way Tyler Kennedy is a natural center - it was his position coming into the league, but he established himself as a winger. The bottom line is that the Hawks preferred to move both Sharp and Kane from their dominant positions rather than try Bolland as a scoring line center. He's not viewed as a #2C option in his own scoring-center-hungry organization.

You continue to completely miss the point about Bolland in Juniors but oh well. It's pretty simple that Bolland has shown to have the scoring skills to be a productive 2C but you can't compare his point totals with Staal who has played a lot of 2C. Well, actually, you've tried to do so and create a red herring by misapplying the junior stats in the vague hope it will support your point but it doesn't.
There's a difference between not understanding and not agreeing.

Come to think of it, the Canes should try to land Bolland...I hear he's only a small drop-off from Staal, he'd be much easier to acquire, and his junior stats are amazing.
