You are right, Chicago is a plenty tough team but I have no idea why they are playing Bollig in a game like this. He's not killing them but he's taking up space, they aren't going to get pushed around without him.
It's a decision many would take. Just look at the amount of our fans that would play a guy like Konopka instead of Halpern on the 4th line if we played Boston.
I don't think Quenneville put in Bollig thinking it will keep Boston more honest. I think he put him in thinking if ever things get roughed, he'll have one extra guy capable of playing that style.
