Yeah...I see no reason to believe Bolland can't be a very strong 2C. But it only makes the 3rd line that much weaker. Bolland has always been in that shutdown role, but his line was shutting anyone down last year. When you are saddled with borderline NHL players like Bickell and Frolik, what do you expect?

Personally I would love to see that Pirri & Saad are ready, but who knows if they are. You could try Bolland/Pirri at 3C/2C and put Saad on the wing on third line...has to be an upgrade over Bickell.
