Kruger and Smith don't do much hitting at all.

Hitting is a key ingredient to a solid 4th line, and Bollig is our best bet for it. You can't have a good checking line with no checking.

16/28 both bring more-e.g. faceoffs/PK/more scoring in addition to solid play. I am not against resigning Bollig; just see price/duration as too high.

Of course they bring more, but that doesn't diminish Bolligs value to the line. They need a guy like Bollig to make room, make hits. I agree the price is too high, but it's not going to hurt us.

Forechecking is much more important than throwing hits.

I was hoping for more of a Dan Carcillo type extension:

2 years @ $825,000

$1.25M is the new $800K. Cap and floor rising means everyone's salary goes up, even the 4th liners.

Bowman learn from his mistake and sign his soon to be UFA before he pots 20 in the POs en-route to leading the Hawks to a repeat?

A guy can dream, right?

Exactly. 2 years would have been better, but I can live with 3 yrs.

Could be worse. I think this is similar to the Reaves contract but 1 year less.
We all would prefer that, but you might well be chasing him as a UFA then. We need a banger and he fits in well. Getting a similar player in UFA would likely cost us more.

Yeah, I don't mind the extra year because it'll be pretty easy to offload him for a 5th rounder or something when that time comes if wanted.

As much as I'm not comfortable with it, I can't really make an objective complaint about this extension. What I would have liked and what he signed for isn't far off in the big picture. He's certainly earned a raise at least. Hopefully this contract works out. I'm happy for him regardless.

Well sure, everybody would be happy if he signed for less than he did, but the point is that his new contract won't pay him so much that I view it as an overpay. $1.25 million per year at his position with the way that the cap's going isn't bad by any stretch of the imagination, nor is it a steal. Fair for both sides.

great to see him stick and staying a while here. Guy is a great 4th liner and good for the team. Teammates like him and this is easy to see.
Bollig does not take away a roster spot for any of the prospects. He is a 7-9 minute 4th Liner and that is not what we want Morin or Danault or McNeill to be.

I would think most people ought to understand Q by now. He's always going to want some type of player like this. Indeed it has next to no barring on skilled prospects. The benefit is that he trusts Bolig to play defensively and wise which boosts his value to the team. He costs more than what you could get another UFA goon for like Scott/Carcillo but he earns it by having more solid play.

$575,000 to $1.250,000 for watching Shaw fight Roussell.

Step the eff up Bollig and earn this raise.

good deal for a good guy.

he can also be easily unloaded if needed when some of our young Rockford forwards are ready to step up and take a spot. this deal though for 3 years is only in reality IMO for next year as the cap hit isn't going to scare a single team away if you need to move him by year 2 of this contract...which will hopefully be the case as Danault, McNeill, TT, Morin, Ross, Kayes, etc are all primed and ready for the big show.

Roussell probably turtles. 190lb pests don't fight enforcers.

He has earned the raise, that's why he got it.

He certainly earned it tonight. The bit about Shaw and Roussel was gold though.

I just found out about this, what a dumb signing, I was hoping for Morin to take his place next year...

Yeah, Morin would do great on the 4th line. All that goal scoring prowess will surely be well utilized on the shutdown line.

Shutdown line? Morin is better defensivly than Bolliig if you want to talk shut down. Bollig is the worst defensive player on the team. You have Smith and Kruger which cycle the puck very well, they need some one with them that can compliment that play.

Based on Bollig is a below average NHL player defensively(also offensively) and based on watching Morin play this season.
