Panthers Ink Bolland On Day 1 Of Free Agency

News: Dave Bolland (ankle) has signed a five-year, $27.5 million deal with the Panthers, according to TSN.ca.
Analysis: Dave Bolland is coming off a disappointing season marred by an ankle injury, as he was able to squeeze in just 23 games for the Leafs. Assuming the injury isn't an issue, Bolland has a very good chance to land a top-six role with the Panthers. That said, he's never put up more than 47 points in an NHL season, and Florida isn't exactly a hotbed for offensive production. Perhaps he can catch a wave with a team trying to improve.

Leafs' Bolland: Headed To Free Agency?

News: Dave Bolland is likely going to hit the free agent market despite earlier statements that he wanted to be a Leaf for life, reports TSN.ca.
Analysis: The issues appear to be money and term. "Dave Bolland's initial ask of the Toronto Maple Leafs was seven to eight years in length and a little under $5 million," said Bob McKenzie of TSN. "The Leafs have some interest, but I don't think they're prepared to give the seven or eight-year deal at that kind of money to Dave Bolland." It is thought the team would likely counter with a Tyler Bozak-type deal, $4.25 or $4.5 million per season. Money clearly talks.

Bolland Wants To Be A Leaf For Life

News: Dave Bolland not only wants to re-sign in Toronto, but said "I want to be a Leaf till my career is done," according to Toronto's Sportsnet 590 The Fan. "Come July 1, I do have that option [to test the open market], but one of my top priorities is staying here," said Boland.
Analysis: In late February, Sportsnet broke a story that Dave Bolland was seeking a seven- or eight year extension to the tune of $40 million or more. He missed most of the season after suffering a lacerated ankle tendon and will need to scale back his contract demands to keep a job in Toronto. But it's nice to see he wants to stay.

Leafs' Bolland Misses Practice Wednesday

News: Dave Bolland (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Jonas Siegel of TSN 1050 reports.
Analysis: Dave Bolland has been plagued by the ankle injury all season, and is considered questionable for the team's final two games Thursday against the Panthers and Saturday against the Senators. The center did collect eight goals and four assists in the 23 games he managed to suit up for.

Leafs' Bolland Out Tuesday

News: Dave Bolland (ankle) will not play Tuesday against the Lightning.
Analysis: With Dave Bolland experiencing recurring problems with the ankle injury first sustained back in November, it's worth wondering whether the Leafs might shut him down at this point. He's already seen his ice time decline considerably in recent games.

Leafs' Bolland Iffy For Tuesday

News: Dave Bolland (ankle) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Lightning, Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 reports.
Analysis: The report notes that Dave Bolland, who saw 9:15 worth of ice time Saturday against the Jets, is dealing with pain in his left ankle, which threatens his availability Tuesday.

Leafs' Bolland Expected To Play Saturday

News: Dave Bolland (undisclosed) is expected to play against the Jets despite missing Friday's practice and Saturday's morning skate, Mark Masters of TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: Officially, Dave Bolland is a game-time decision for Saturday's tilt due to an undisclosed injury, but coach Randy Carlyle said he should be available. The 27-year-old Bolland has two goals and two assists in his last four games.

Bolland Scores In Toronto Loss

News: Dave Bolland scored one of Toronto's two goals in Friday's 4-2 loss to Philadelphia, his first tally since he potted two goals on Oct. 26.
Analysis: Dave Bolland has missed the majority of the season with an ankle injury, with Friday's point representing his first in four games since returning to action. The 27-year-old likely won't contribute too much offensively, but he gives the Leafs a solid checking center with some speed.

Leafs' Bolland Likely To Return Saturday

News: Dave Bolland (ankle) is considered probable in advance of Saturday's game vs. the Canadiens, Sportsnet.ca's Chris Johnston reports.
Analysis: Coach Randy Carlyle certainly seemed to talk as if the forward would be a part of Saturday's lineup, saying that he didn't plan to limit Dave Bolland's minutes but at the same time emphasizing that it could take a bit for him to get back up to full speed. Saturday's return will mark Bolland's first game action since slicing the tendon of his left ankle against the Canucks way back on Nov. 2.

Leafs' Bolland (Ankle) Returns To Action

News: Dave Bolland (ankle) played Saturday for the first time since Nov. 2. He had three hits and one SOG in 9:01.
Analysis: His ice time will slowly increase as he gets his legs back under him. He was excellent in the faceoff circle, winning eight of nine, so that part of his game is back. The rest will come soon enough.

Leafs Officially Activate Bolland

News: Dave Bolland (ankle) was officially activated from LTIR on Saturday, David Alter of Sportsnet 590 reports.
Analysis: As anticipated, Dave Bolland will rejoin the lineup Saturday for the first time in four and a half months. Peter Holland was sent down to AHL Toronto for cap purposes.

Leafs' Bolland Skates Saturday

News: Dave Bolland (ankle) took part in the Leafs' Saturday morning skate, TSN's Jonas Siegel reports.
Analysis: Dave Bolland has been nearing a return for a little while now and he could find himself back in the lineup as early as Saturday night. The Leafs will evaluate him after the morning skate and make a determination then, so consider him a game-time decision.

Leafs' Bolland: Decision To Play To Come Saturday

News: Leafs' coach Randy Carlyle will decide Saturday if Dave Bolland (ankle) will suit up against the Canadiens that evening, reports the Toronto Star. "... it's getting closer to a decision on whether he plays for us the next game or the game after that," said Carlyle after Friday's practice where Bolland took full line rushes.
Analysis: "I haven't been told but it's a decision I think we make (Saturday)," said Dave Bolland, who skated on a line with Mason Raymond and David Clarkson during Friday's practice. He has missed 56 games with an ankle tendon injury. His return would give a big boost to the Leafs and change the complexion of their top nine, forcing opponents to play the team very differently than they do now.

Leafs' Bolland Finally Practicing Fully

News: Dave Bolland (ankle) participated in full line rushes in Friday's practice, Stephen Whyno of The Canadian Press reports.
Analysis: Dave Bolland hasn't seen the ice in an NHL game since he sliced a tendon in his ankle back on Nov. 2, which caused him to miss a total of 56 games. Friday's practice indicates that he may be nearing a return, however. Bolland had accumulated 10 points over 15 games before suffering the injury.

Leafs Calling Bolland 'Week-To-Week'

News: Coach Randy Carlyle said Dave Bolland (ankle) is week-to-week with his injury, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: Carlyle noted that Dave Bolland has made a little progress in his recovery during the team's road trip, but it doesn't appear as though he's particularly close to returning. Until he resumes taking part in full-contact practices, fantasy players should keep him out of their active lineups.

Leafs' Bolland Will See Specialist

News: Dave Bolland (ankle) will visit with a specialist in the U.S. to discuss his recovery, James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail reports.
Analysis: Dave Bolland has already been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Rangers, and now it sounds like he might not be as close to returning as we thought. We'll likely have a better idea of his timetable in the next few days, but it would be wise to steer clear of him until he proves he's healthy.

Leafs' Bolland Out For Wednesday

News: Dave Bolland (ankle) will not play Wednesday against the Rangers, David Alter of Sportsnet 590 reports.
Analysis: Dave Bolland has been sidelined since November 2, and will sit out again Wednesday. Although he's productive when healthy, the center has a history of injury issues, and should be considered a risky pickup at this point. He registered six goals and four assists in 15 games before getting hurt.

Leafs' Bolland Likely Out For Monday

News: Dave Bolland (ankle) says that he doesn't feel like he will play Monday, Sportsnet 590's Daveis Alter reports.
Analysis: Dave Bolland says there are still issues with his ankle, so he likely will remain sidelined with his ankle injury. He'll be re-evaluated daily and the Leafs will then make a determination as to when he can be activated from injured reserve.

Leafs' Bolland Considered Day-to-Day

News: Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle said Friday that Dave Bolland (ankle) is day-to-day, Jonas Siegel of TSN 1050 Radio reports.
Analysis: Though still on IR, Dave Bolland appears to be inching closer to a return from his ankle injury. Carlyle said he will leave it to Bolland to decide when he's good to go, and considering he's been out since Nov. 2, the 27-year-old figures to require at least a week or so of full practices before being activated.

Leafs' Bolland Hits Snag In Recovery

News: Dave Bolland (ankle) was back at practice Wednesday, but wasn't allowed to participate in full-contact duty, The Canadian Press reports.
Analysis: The setback appears to have stemmed from a stumble Dave Bolland took during Tuesday's session, as the forward appeared to be in pain after getting up from the ice. While he's still considered day-to-day, it would appear that Bolland's downgrade to non-contact work will keep him out of the lineup for the next couple of games.

Leafs' Bolland Leaves Practice Limping

News: Dave Bolland (ankle) remains day-to-day and may not be ready to return immediately, according to the Toronto Star. He went down hard after a collision in practice Tuesday and came up limping.
Analysis: He tried to continue to play and did so briefly, only to leave before the end of the workout, tossing his stick in frustration. We're not sure exactly what that means or whether it represents a setback. No surprise here -- keep him benched.

Leafs' Bolland Joins Team For Practice Wednesday

News: Dave Bolland (ankle) skated on the third line during Wednesday's practice, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: Dave Bolland had resumed practicing lightly with the team before the Olympic break, but Wednesday's session marked the first time he was able to take part in regular line work. The forward is seemingly on track for a return to the lineup next Thursday against the Islanders, but coach Randy Carlyle said the team would likely hold off until the day before to the game to make a decision on his status.

Leafs' Bolland Likely Ready After Break

News: Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle said that Dave Bolland (ankle) "should be available" after the Olympic break, Sportsnet's David Alter reports.
Analysis: Dave Bolland recently said that his recovery hasn't been progressing the way he had hoped. That may still be the case, but the Olympic break gives him another two-and-a-half weeks to get ready, without having to miss any games. He got off to a fast start this season, scoring 10 points (six goals) in 15 games, before suffering the injury.

Leafs' Bolland (Ankle): Slow Progress

News: Dave Bolland (ankle) continues to work out with his teammates, but admits "things are progressing, not as quickly as I wished they were," reports the Toronto Sun.
Analysis: So, what's his biggest limitation? "It's crossing over and getting on that ankle, putting weight on it," Dave Bolland said. "Going down on a 3-on-2 and the puck gets poked off your stick, it's that quick transition of turning on a dime and getting back (that has been a challenge)." It looks like he'll be focusing on a return after the Olympic break, but will needs considerable work to improve from his current state.

Leafs' Bolland Unlikely To Return Before Break

News: Dave Bolland (ankle) is unlikely to return before the Olympic break, David Alter of Sportsnet 590 reports.
Analysis: Previously, it was expected that Dave Bolland's return would be limited to one game before the break anyway, but that scenario now appears to be doubtful at best.
