Dave Bolland

Chris Kuc just mentioned on twitter Dave Bolland is out for the Min game tomorrow. Anyone know what's wrong? Horrible time of year for him to go down.

Q said it's not serious. Though, it is an "upper body" injury.. so that, coupled with the fact Q said it wasn't serious.. likely means Bolland is done for the year.

Saw that Bolland is out, Bruno is questionable, and that Toews will travel and not play - all at the same time. First thought that ran through my head was we're trying to give the game away, and hang onto the sixth seed. Either I'm onto something or you douches who have said to tank and hang onto the six spot have brainwashed me.

Don't think it's a big deal. He probably would play if they were fighting for a playoff spot, but may as well rest him.

We're one game back from a 4 seed. If Q is resting guys I'm going to be pissed.

We don't hold the tiebreaker over Nashville. I think its prudent, at this juncture, (haven't used that in a while) to give guys a rest against Minny. Hopefully we get the 2 points anyway, and then we take stock at the landscape and see where the chips fall.

Nashville has to lose out for the Hawks to get the 4. If they were pushing for the 4, they would have started Crawford against Minnesota last game.

You might want to actually review the standings before you get pissed.

"One game back" implies that if we win our next game we are 4th. Nothing could be further from the truth.

No...that would be a half game back.

1 game back implies if we win and they lose we are tied.


But with the tiebreaker, they aren't anyways.

Honestly at this point ,, Good

Sit him for final 2 games

Bolland's play has been awful lately and his penalties are killing Hawks

Whenever BWC says someone is playing awful, I always just assume the opposite at this point.

Bolland has six points in the last ten games for a +8. Not exactly awful.

His penalties have been borderline to put it politely... he has been more involved and probably playing his best hockey of the year. Just warming up for the playoffs.

Not really but there is a real chance we could finish 5th. Careful what you wish for.

Hawks would rather rest their guys, keep the sixth spot, and get ready for the playoffs.

I think it's naive for anyone to think that tanking hasn't been discussed behind closed doors. Obviously they're never going to tell their guys to let up or lose on purpose but they can certainly gimp the roster to the point as to where a win would be less likely.

Or these guys really could just need to heal and can't play.

I'm not sure what the point of tanking would be.

I get that Nashville has owned Chicago this year, but so have the Kings ... and Phoenix has a winning record against Chicago, too.

If you could pick the perfect first-round opponent based on the regular season, it would be Detroit, with or without home ice, as the Hawks are 3-0-2 against the Red Wings.

I guess my feeling would be to just play the final two games and not worry about it. You can't avoid difficult matchups in the playoffs. And while hard-fought series wins in the playoffs can take their toll on a team, the Bruins showed last year that you can play seven-game series after seven-game series and still win the cup.
