Looking at Page 16 of the Committed Indian published on 22 June 2013, Dave Bolland has been miserable in these playoffs. According to the Hockey Sabremetrics for the Chicago Blackhawks, Dave Bolland has one of worst GFON/60 - GAON/60 ratings on the team; only Stalberg, Bollig, Leddy are worse. Dave Bolland is dead last on the team with a Corsi Rating of -12.08 (no one even comes close), and second to last on the team with a faceoff percentage of 41.7%.

Except neither Craw/Hammer have had the failed chances Davey Boy has and neither has injury history
Also Bolland being UFA in a year should factor in as well
Seems to me Bolland being a UFA in a year is a big mark in his favor to stay. Give him one more year to see how he bounces back. It would be a lot easier to let him go if he has a bad year next year. If he has a good year, cap goes up and we talk extension.
At end of day if you want Bickell they need to free up $$$ ,, Bolland is #1 on list to move
If I was making the choices, BB, Bolland and Frolik would stay, Leddy would be dealt. I want to keep the important pieces of this team here and Bolland/Frolik being UFAs after next year gives us flexibility if we need it. Also gives the young forwards another year to develop.
