That's understandable.

Bollig's strong along the boards, cycles well, gets in on the forecheck and throws his considerable weight around and he really does have a great shot.. he's just doesn't have much of any hockey sense to speak of.
You're straight up talking about the pre-Hawks Carcillo. Outside of a few flashes, he pretty much never showed any of those traits in his time here.
