I'm a Bowman fan, but keeping Bolland after 2010 and 2011 has been the decision I've found the most frustrating of them all since demand for a player like Bolland was so high. His defensive exploits of 2010 have been replicated by a number of other players. A good playoff run and I might retract my criticism of the decision to have kept him around.

Everything may still work out great though. Even though he's struggled this year and missed games because of injury, it's tough to argue with the results so far. I think his cap hit and play cost them pts and seeding in the previous 2 years, but keeping his cap hit and him on the roster this year may have made things better this year directly or indirectly.
