Bolland has played well in the playoffs
Bolland has not helped the team in the standings the last 2 years anywhere close to expectations or talent level when taking into account health, hot/cold streaks, and likely trade returns.

I don't think one can be argued well without acknowledging the other. Is it better to have a better playoff matchup or a better performer? For those the heavily weight postseason results above all else, I think the argument is against having kept Bolland since a first round exit is worthless among those types.

Anyway, that's hindsight. I've wanted him gone, now I think it's better that he stays.
