I'd like to get opinions from everyone on this 2nd round 32 overall in 2004 draft pick of Chicago. Yesterday he had 4g 2a for 26g 32a 58p in 48 games this season Parts of an article from LFP: Bolland is one of the prize prospects who always plays his guts out. The Chicago Blackhawks, who drafted him early in the second round last June, have to be salivating at what this guy might do. He's also one of those guys who always seems to take a back seat to someone else. Take last night. Bolland's six points would normally have been automatic first star billing. But it only earned him a second star because Corey Perry had five goals and an assist. Bolland's linemate Danny Fritsche scored one goal and added five assists. Bolland didn't care much about who was picked where or sharing his big night. He was beaming after the game and wanted to talk as much about Josh Beaulieu as he did about the goals and assists Bolland is an energy-type player. He almost made the gold medal-winning national junior team this year. Blair Mackasey, scouting director for the team, said Bolland is the type of player that could be a cornerstone for next year's team. He, too, felt Bolland is often overlooked because guys like Perry and Danny Syvret play with him. Last year, Bolland had 37 goals and it could have been the quietest 37 goals in history. He has 26 this season. IMO he should have been on team Canada this year but I can't complain we won gold. But the experience he could have had this year would have had a huge impact on him playing next Dec. as he will no doubt be on team and possibly assistant captain or captain. I think he has a better shot at making it in the NHL than Corey Perry or Rob Schremp for one simple reason: his game is safer to translate into the NHL level. I don't know who to comapre him to but his tenacity and fire will one day land him atleast on the 3rd line of Chicago, probable 2nd line impact player. Anyone have any thoughts or comments on him?
