Well if you've been watching Bolland so closely, you surely would've noticed his dramatic increase in play during the playoffs. He's played an integral role for 3 straight season from 2009-2011 containing the Sedin twins at 100+ pt peak level. He always got the tougher, in zone-matchups during those years while Toews and Sharp were put in a scoring role. Obviously, that's changed in recent years with Toews improvement in defensive play and the emergence of center Markus Kruger. Callahan really hasn't shown dominance Bolland put in the 2010 playoff run.
