I.e. overrated... Especially if he's garnering the title of best 3rd line center in the league by some.

I would predict a contract around his present value... Token raise to $3.5?
I know you aren't supposed to judge a book by its cover, but jeez. Bieksa must be as smart as he looks.

I agree that Bolland takes advantage of the Sedin's brutal defensive play and extremely weak playing style, but he also looks great against anyone in the playoffs. Besides, a lot of players look great against the Sedins in the playoffs. Maybe that is what Bieksa is trying to say? I don't know. Every year in the playoffs Bolland plays at a high level no matter the opponent.
