I don't see how his 3 million dollars is going to make the team much better. Injury risks McDonald and Connolly cost 4.7 million, 37 year old Matt Cullen was making more than Bolland, Lombardi was getting 3.5, Koivu at 3.8, and even Handzus is making 2.5 etc.
An upgrade over Bolland is going to start at 4 million.
The window to trade him for value shut at the start of the year, the window was locked at his first injury. The Hawks aren't going to get better at center without taking a hit somewhere else on the roster.
He's a cost effective gamble at this point and the league is running out of really bad gms willing to overpay. Probably best just to sit on his contract and hope for the best.
