"Bolly's been OK, but I think he can be better," Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said.

"I'd like to see him (play) with more tenacity in the puck area and have the puck more," Quenneville said. "Have that pace to his game, whether he's challenging the other team's top player or not. I think he still can be considered offensively contributing and more predictable defensively.

"I don't know whether it's expectations measuring in production to that goal level we don't have a number in mind. We'd just like to see that consistency game in and game out where Bolly's a factor, knowing that he's hard to play against and defensively reliable."
So Q knows what we all know; Bolland could be better.
Pretty much sums up my thoughts on Bolland as well. He has been "OK". On the one hand, he has not set the world on fire offensively and has had some inconsistent efforts. On the other, he has freed up Kane offensively and allowed Q to roll 4 lines without worrying about match-ups.
