Hopefully the Bolland era is almost over in Chicago
Bolland is being played out of position, it's not his fault, he, like Kruger and Kane have been tried to be forced into a position they aren't built for. Yet when they don't produce instead of people getting at Bowman for 3 years now not acquiring an actual #2 C or Q for trying to put guys there who aren't supposed to be there we blame the player.
I don't fault Bolland, he is a premier shutdown #3C and one of the best if not the best at that role. He is a serviceable #2 C but it's not what he should be playing. If the Hawks either actually put Sharp back or get someone who is a #2C then Bolland can go back to doing what he does best. But I won't blame all of this on Bolland as much of it isn't his fault.
But yes, lets get rid of an elite shutdown #3C who has all but erased some of the best forwards in the NHL and who is a playoff warrior, because.
