In the off season...he gets traded. Maybe he gets bought out....who knows. Gross overpayment for his play.
Let's judge Bolland as a playoff performer based on 3 games after being out over a month with an injury and not his career. GENUIS!

Oh and suck it, how mature and well thought out. Glad to see your more concerned about being right then the Hawks winning, but anything to be right with your irrational and quick to judge ideas right?

I will give you props as you have blown the Bolland horn louder than anyone here.

You also did not read where I said I was right UNFORTUNATELY. You inability to read is as poor as your blind Mancrush for a player that has not performed in regular or post season for at least two years. I said before the playoffs I would love to be proven wrong about him but I was betting I wouldn't. So you can suck it.....long and hard.

I kind of like Q, but sometimes a need is changed. I'm not saying this change should be made now.

That is the first time I heard that I heard no one wanted to work with Q.

Bolland was horrible in last year's playoffs, too.

This year, it's not just that he's not contributing offensively, he's not contributing at all. If the recovery from his injury prevents him from being effective then he shouldn't be playing...what he did in the past doesn't matter if he can't do it in the present...it's not the regular season where there is time for him to ramp up his game...you don't have that luxury in the playoffs.

Lets look over PPG over the last 3 play-offs for the Hawks then.

Kane .85
Sharp .76
Bolland .75
Hossa .72
Toews .52

Is that Bolland just behind Sharp and ahead of Hossa and Toews? and Bolland played on the 3rd line most of that time.

But your right he hasn't produced at all in the last 3 years and you used such great facts as, suck it long and hard to back up your well thought out argument.

Win or lose this year, the powerplay definitely needs to be addressed. I'm not really sure if it's the lack of a true PP QB, I just think that the Hawks wait too long and hold onto the puck until someone closes on them. I think it's more so a schematic problem where they have to figure out a better way to get guys open for quick passes. Who knows though, maybe a bonafide PP specialist will fix things.

Isn't Clendenning good on the PP? I'm hopeful for his arrival whenever that may be

That stat is inflated because he had a good playoffs in 2011. If you do it for the last two years his PPG is 0.33.

Great, let's start cherry picking stats, if I take away this year Sharp is like .25. It's about the last 3 years, plus last time I checked Bolland isn't on this team to be a top scorer, the fact that he has been while playing his shutdown role shows his value.

It's all about what players are doing for the team now. How a guy did from 2010-2012 does not help the Stanley Cup aspirations of the 2013 Chicago Blackhawks. Bolland has not looked that great. I'd like to think it's because he had some rust for being off for a little while, but he wasn't that great all season long.

I'm won't judge him on these playoffs yet, he has played 3 games after being out a month.

If you want to point a finger at this years playoffs as much as I hate to do it considering he is my favorite player in a long time it has to be pointed at Toews.

3 points in 8 games from your #1 C isn't cutting it at all. When guys like Bickell, Shawk, Oduya and Frolik have as many and more points, that's an issue.

I agree on Toews. I'm ready for him to nut-up and get things back on track tomorrow. As crazy as it may sound, he'll silence the critics tomorrow night and show us why he's the captain of this team and so highly though of.

Why in the world would the Hawks trade their best offensive player even though they only need to shave a few million from the current roster?

There was a looking ahead to the Hawks next opponent thread after they won game 1. This board is ridiculous.

There's a disclaimer on the first page. Nothing wrong with talking. This place is a ghost town during the playoffs unless it is game day anyway.

All the disclaimer proves is that you knew your post was ridiculous when you made it.

I mean yeah, the season could be over as soon as Saturday. it's possible. It's also possible the Hawks run the table on the rest of the series and go on to win the Cup. Who knows.

I'll say this, though. If they do lose, we'll have 5+ months to talk about the shortcomings and places that need to be fixed. This place is a bigger ghost town in the summer than it is now. Until then...while you guys are free to be negative if you'd like, I'll remain positive and hopeful that the Hawks turn up the jets tomorrow!
