I didn't read his post all the way thru but keep in mind the Hawks 3rd line plays a good chunk of minutes a night. Q likes to roll 3 lines deep and give the 4th line a little bit.
so acquiring a 4th line C (Boyle) doesn't make any sense.
I think his point was that Bolland really makes that 3rd line go... and Q plays matchups with it. So that the Hawks as a team are a better team with Bolland on the 3rd line as opposed to the 2nd line.
If it were me and I wanted to play Bolland at 2C, that line would probably feature Hossa and Stalberg. Two guys who are good on the forecheck and can produce some scoring as well.... That would leave a top line of Sharp-Toews-Kane and a 3rd line of Bickell-Kruger -Frolik. Which squeezes Saad out..
