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.
Why can't he produce even quality 3C numbers while playing on the 2nd line? The out of position argument doesn't wash.
