I wanted him earlier but now there just seems to be too many red flags. When asked what Kane needs to do to crack the lineup Maurice apparently told the reporters that for starters he needs to show up at the rink. Which sounds like he has missed a practice or something.

And I think Winnipeg would want a massive return anyway. Too risky for my taste.

My thoughts as well.

Fun fact: my friends sister went to school with him. Well maybe not that much fun.

No thanks.. I recall a game this year where he sucker punched on of our guys. Came off as a really classless punk.

As I recall, it was Upshall.

Dave Bolland rumours

Been hearing that Tallon might go for Bolland. Chicago connection again. Bolland never wanted to go to Toronto and wants to go a warm climate supposedly.

For me, he's a solid gritty 3rd line centre. Yet what we have is an abundance of centres!

He would probably be looking for $5 million per season. Which is way too much imo, but he's a UFA so he will be overpaid. Also, he's had a real injury prone season.

Would you be keen on taking this guy? And how much for, and for how long?

And if we did take this guy, surely we would trade one of our young centres.

Nope. Not at all. Trocheck would be much better in that spot. If we get a centerman it should be tough 4th line vet, like how Madden was brought in.

Actually a more accurate statement would be

"He's had a real injury prone career"

Bolland was worst Hawk player last year (Ended season on 4th line) and now he is coming off another major injury

Panthers should avoid him at all costs IMO

I agree. Especially considering what the cost might be!

I've hardly heard a single positive comment from Hawks and Leafs fans about Bolland, so that speaks for itself for me. No thank you.

No thanks. No more bottom sixers. Need top line talent.

Decent player if he has a respectable salary, big injury issues however. Apparently he's seeking 5mil a season so I'd stay very very far away.

Not only 5M but longterm deal as well

Given his injury history the longterm part alone should be no go for any franchise

I'd be very unhappy if we signed him and he would keep someone like shore out of the lineup

He's not a fit.

Too old, too injury prone and not worth the $$ someone dumb enough is bound to pay him.

It's unfortunate but I can see Tallon wasting cap on this guy. Had maybe 2 healthy years in the Nhl. Doesn't score, DOESNT SCORE. Why does it take a genious to realize that we need an premier star player. We have the pieces, the elite talent will help this team out. Go get a vanek, Gaborik, Moulson, even Vrbata is better than this guy. One gifted offensive player, one second line winger, and a Good veteran defenseman. 3 key pickups, with what? $27 mil available? Certainly can do it

If Tallon trades for another former Blackhawk, I seriously hope he gets fired. Going blind by the love for his former team.

i think his last few ones have been pretty good though

pirri, olsen and hayes all seem to find their place on our team

for

versteeg, a 3rd and a 5th

he's done some mediocre ones, but olesz for campbell was a steal, pirri was a steal

he've done some bad ones, but overall they good i think

I agree. Overall, I like Tallon, but if he made this move, I would start seriously questioning his decisions.

Unfortunate, there isnt one bit of info saying that Tallon is interested in him. With all the talk about us going after top end UFAs, I doubt this happens, not to mention our center depth already.

i seriously doubt Tallon pursues Bolland. we have centers coming out of our ass. so much so that we're likely going to have to convert a couple of them to wing next year (pirri, maybe trochek...his long term upside seems to be more of a top-6 player, but he will always be stuck behind Barkov and Bjugstad here)

Shore would make an ideal 3rd line C IMO (long term).


If he actually does sign Bolland, he should be fired immediately. No need.
