The only real concerns I have about Bolland is his health, his tendency to get injured, and especially the fact that he has had back issues. And it is for that reason that I wouldnít be terribly upset if he was traded for the right player. Assuming that wonít happen, and Bolland remains a Blackhawk Ė he will seldom dazzle anyone, but he is almost always noticeable when it really counts and he is healthy. Is he the ideal 2nd line centerman. No but a second line centreman is not going to just fall into our lap. Perhaps he looks out of place now to some but I guarantee that wonít be the case in the playoffs, and thatís when it counts. Iíd say Stanís best option before the TD is to concentrate on a player of Iginlaís ilk and another bottom 6 grinder, possibly even a physical dman if one becomes available. Personally Iíd be looking for a goalie as well, but thatís not likely to happen. If Stan stays true to form, he will do none of the above and instead make a minor deal in the next 2 weeks, maybe even two deals and some here will gush over him along with the usual rhetoric about the price being too high or no suitable player being available.
