I still think there's higher upside if Holland is used there and pans out.
Bonino has proved he can play offense and responsible defense at NHL speed. Holland has proved he's where Bonino was 2 years ago. Holland can start on the lower lines just like everyone else does, and if he's better, he'll get promoted. Planning in a rookie as your 2C is playing for a lottery pick.
