It would be sad to see Bolland go, as he was one of my favorite players over the last 5 or so years.
If healthy, he would be a welcome addition to any team. He's a gamer, with two stanley cup rings that he played a pivotal role in capturing.
Totally agree with this.
That being said - I'd much rather have Bickell on the roster for $3.5M'ish than Bolland for $3.4M. Hawks are again in the difficult position of rotating "non-core" guys off the roster, but I'd much rather Bowman be pro-active, re-sign Bickell and add additional assets to the pipeline.
