Both you guys make great points , obviously great hockey fans who make a lot of sense ..I was tryting to make a point , and a lot of this has transpired on sitemail between Muddy and myself and has not been seen on the public forums . Character is a lot like skill you cant just insert a character guy like that..me being a Canuck fan hated Bolland, can you guys name a player that has frustrated the Sedins as much as he has? his value goes way beyond his stats ,i think he is the type of guy that is equivalent to a first line player , i think the Leafs stole him no matter what his cap hit ,and the Hawks are a weaker team for it . you cannot just throw in a spare part with characterand expect the same results,,that is what i was trying to get across to the Gator hunter to no avail ..
Randle is 100% correct that Charachter =Skill. As a CANUCKS FAN I would say that DAVE Bolland (as a Hawk) was a hated foe. Canuck fans hated the SOB. But most Canuck fans would love to have Bolland on the CANUCKS roster. In Vancouver, there are certain HAWK players (Kane) who are part of the Hawks Core, that most CANUCK FANS would PUKE if they were on our team......lol
So Randle......You are correct!!!
Bolland is not a spare part. Bolland is just a HAWK, that the HAWKS could no longer afford? And the Leafs are a better with Bolland.
Hope I explained my OPINION!!
Can't blame Bowman for letting Bolland go!!!!
Cheers and GO CANUCKS BABY!!!!
