Probably, but the point is Leddy is going to continue to get better; he likely won't be a top-pairing guy, but a very good #3 and Chicago has young players that can come in a be quality #3 centres immediately (Kruger, Shaw) or within two years (Danault, McNeill).

You could let Leddy go and bring up Clendening.. except, with the way he plays, he could put up 30+ points in his rookie season on Chicago's top PP unit and then, in a year, you'd have to extend him.

I'm very much in the 'Keep Bolland' group.. but if it's between Leddy + a #2C or Bolland + Leddy, I'd choose the former.
