Chicago Villain in waiting- David Bolland

Good player but a rat. Not sure how many here are aware of this guy but he is one dirty mother if you ask me. I have friends who watched him in London all the time and others around the NHL, who tell me there is no line this guy wouldn't cross. He's no dummy either- has the Mike Richards smarts to set up and unload on an opposing skilled player and then pull a 'whoa, sorry about that- me bad'. I've known this for awhile so I found it interesting he took out Richards and concussed him and probably impacted that series.

Andrew Shaw will get a lot of attention since he sounds like Brad Marchand is his hero- but as irritating and likely over the edge he may be, Bolland is the guy who I can see zeroing in on Bergeron and Krejci. I figured this was the plan but when I saw him last night sitting during media day with Tappan, Melrose, and Mike Johnson or Kevin Weeks, he mentioned stopping those two guys specifically by name as if he's already got them in sight.

Keep your eyes on this guy folks #36 to me he is the worst combo- pretty good player who has nice talent albeit can be a bit up and down but when he gets hot he can put up points (I'd take him, smart, and will take that predatory open ice hit, or high hit in the corner near the head)

Shaw will likely be a complete a-hole since I think he consciously wants the attention, but Bolland will be the guy that would like nothing better than get a knock out shot at Bergeron or Krejci. I can not even print half the crap I heard on this guy so trust me he concerns me Shaw uses his stick and hits but he's more along the Marchand unnecessary not needed- lack of discipline stuff like massaging Morrow's balls with his stick, or the dumb take out on Crosby; but Bolland is looking to put your guy in a darkroom and he is dangerous like Raffi Torres with more talent. Campbell actually would have been a nice assignment to him but whatever, Boston can make do.

Also, watch the Hawks system- everything flows from the right defense and Boston needs to get pucks deep on them-especially Keith, Leddy, and Oduya and hammer them but support the intermediary first pass area.

I think any winger he is up against on the top two lines- like to see him target Bickell.

he will certainly go after him physically, but Boston's top two left wingers Lucic and Marchand need to either blast him (Lucic) or just be a pain in the ass like Marchand. Bickell is pretty good but he's not all of a sudden become Cam Neely here. This is more like Stephane Mattau or John Druce or even Fedetenko who got hot in the playoffs. He can be a Darrin McCarty type which is pretty good and valuable but I'd hope Lucic can lay a big hit or two on him- and Chara if he wants can hit with the best of him. Take it to him, not other way around.

As much as guys like Bickell / Shaw/ Bolland are considered pests and will try to get under the skin of Chara/DK/Bergeron, the one thing we have going for our pests is they actually know how to play hockey and don't hurt us if they play over 17mins a night.

While Bickell has been a pleasant surprise this year, if they want to keep throwing over Shaw/Bolland to go after our guys...it'll only help us on the offensive side of things.

Dan,

I believe all of this, but if your friends in London know, pretty sure DK and Bergeron are aware of this also? Best defense can be a good offense, why not have Lucic **** him up before he goes after our guys. Even if he doesn't get him right away, Bolland will have to have his head on a swivel as well because Looch is big/strong enough to hurt you without being dirty.

It's hard to target other guys when you are being hunted...

As far as Bickell goes, he's a decent player and having a good playoff series, but he is not a match for Chara IMO, nor is he a good comparison to Lucic as some have been doing (Bickell has something like 4 fights in the last few years, and is not a great fighter).

B's need to keep playing their game, get the puck in deep, punish the D, and clog the NZ when they do break out, creating offensive opportunities with their D.

Tough series, B's in 6.

respect to Bolland, but we just faced Cooke. Should be ready for him as well. Watching for Marchand to get Toews off of his game. Seems like he can be easily rattled.

Far be it for me to call you out on anything hockey-related, but from what I've seen, Chicago's often been using the quick-up from the LEFT Defense. Maybe you meant Boston's right side? Or more likely, I've got my cranium in my colon.

I want him to make Kane's life miserable. They will be lining up next to each other often. Kane is RW and Marchand is LW. I do believe Bergy line is going against Bickell-Handzus-Kane

Kane is the scariest player on the team offensivley and if Marchand can be physical and drive him insane it will throw him off big time

Lucic needs to speedbag Bickell like Mclaren did a couple of years ago.

He will hit him every time the puck is in his corner...trying to draw retaliatory penalties. I didn't say he was going to dominate him or anything...just going to drive him nuts.

Rumor is he is hurt, any truth?

Also, I think this board is going to loathe Toews by the end of the 2nd period tonight.
