Panthers' Bolland Will Play Monday

News: Dave Bolland will return to the lineup Monday against the Blues, Steve Goldstein of Fox Sports Florida reports.
Analysis: Dave Bolland hasn't played since Oct. 17, and failed to record a point in four games before suffering the injury. He'll need to prove he can stay healthy before fantasy owners should consider picking him up.

Panthers' Bolland A Game-Time Decision Saturday

News: Dave Bolland (groin) will be a game-time decision Saturday against the Sabres, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Prior reports had Dave Bolland sitting Saturday, but he was on the ice for morning skate and coach Gerard Gallant said the 28-year-old will be a game-time call. Bolland hasn't played since Oct. 17.

Panthers' Bolland Not Play Saturday

News: Dave Bolland (groin) has been ruled out for a return Saturday against the Sabres, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Dave Bolland resumed skating with the team Friday after previously being limited to working out on his own, but he still needs some more conditioning work. The Panthers are of no mind to rush Bolland back to action and could wait until next week to activate him from IR.

Panthers' Bolland Will Not Be Activated Thursday

News: Dave Bolland (groin) will not play Thursday, Harvey Fialkov of the Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Dave Bolland was able to take part in Thursday's morning skate and seems to be fully healthy, but it appears the Panthers want him to make up for lost conditioning time. He could need a few additional days on the ice before returning to the lineup as soon as Saturday against the Sabres.

Panthers' Bolland (Groin) Will Travel To Columbus

News: Dave Bolland (groin) will travel with the team to Columbus, but won't play Monday, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Dave Bolland has been sidelined since Oct. 17 with a groin injury, but appears to be nearing a return. Although it will not come Monday, he hasn't been ruled out for Thursday. In four games on the season, Bolland has been kept off the scoreboard in 16:04 of ice time.

Dave Bolland

Panthers' Bolland Could Return Next Week

News: Dave Bolland (groin) skated with the full team at Thursday's practice, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Dave Bolland has been slow to recover from the groin injury he suffered in the fourth game of the season, but there's growing optimism that his return could be forthcoming. He'll probably need a couple more practices to get back up to full speed as he sets his sights on returning from IR next week. His return will provide the Panthers with a little more depth down the middle, but the team is likely already experiencing a bit of buyer's remorse after doling out a five-year, $27.5 million contract to the center this past offseason.

Panthers' Bolland Joins Team For Skate

News: Dave Bolland (groin) joined the team for Saturday's morning skate, Craig Davis of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Dave Bolland doesn't appear to be close to returning from injured reserve just yet, but the fact that he's skating with the rest of his mates would seem to indicate progress. The veteran center has been sidelined since mid-October with a groin strain.

Dave Bolland

Panthers' Bolland Making Progress

News: Dave Bolland (groin) is considered close to returning, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Coach Gerard Gallant was unwilling to put a timeline on Dave Bolland's projected return date, but it sounds like he's continuing to make decent progress in his recovery with the groin injury. With the Panthers playing their best hockey of the season, however, Gallant is of no mind to rush Bolland back into the lineup until he's convinced the center is fully healthy.

Panthers' Bolland Not Skating

News: Dave Bolland (groin) has yet to resume skating, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: It was believed that Dave Bolland was making some progress in his recovery from the groin injury, but this latest news seems to indicate otherwise, or at the very least, suggest that he's not as close to a return as expected. Once he's cleared for on-ice work, Bolland will likely have to skate on his own for a few days, take part in practices and possibly take part in a conditioning assignment, all of which would add further time to his recovery timetable.

Dave Bolland

Panthers' Bolland Could Be Option For Sunday

News: Dave Bolland (groin) is expected to travel with the Panthers on their four-game road trip beginning Sunday in Anaheim, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Dave Bolland is far from a sure thing to play for all four games of the trip, but indicates that he's starting to make some progress with his recovery from the injury. The veteran will miss his ninth straight game with the injury Friday against the Islanders, but it appears the Panthers are viewing him as day-to-day at this point.

Panthers' Bolland Nearing Return

News: Dave Bolland (groin) could return to the lineup soon, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: He won't play Tuesday against the Sharks, but it sounds like Dave Bolland could get back in the lineup Friday against the Islanders. The gritty center has yet to record a point in four games this season.

Panthers' Bolland Lands On IR

News: Dave Bolland (lower body) has been placed on injured reserve Friday, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports
Analysis: Dave Bolland had only played the first four games of the season before sustaining the injury and did not have any points and only four penalty minutes. This stint on IR is retroactive to October 17 which, would make him eligible to return to action as soon as tomorrow against the Flyers. Bolland has had injury problems over the last couple of seasons, including playing only 23 games with the Maple Leafs last season.

Panthers' Bolland Out Again Thursday

News: Dave Bolland (lower body) has been ruled out of Thursday's game against the Coyotes, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Dave Bolland has been skating on his own, but shouldn't be considered close to returning until he resumes practicing with the full team. He'll miss his fourth straight game Thursday and could be moved to injured reserve and some point in the near future.

Panthers Rule Bolland Out For Saturday

News: Dave Bolland (lower body) will not return to action Saturday against the Coyotes, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: With Dave Bolland again failing to take part in Friday's practice, the Panthers felt comfortable ruling him out as an option for Saturday. After the game against the Coyotes, the Panthers won't play again until Oct. 30, affording Bolland some needed recovery time. If Bolland fails to return to health by that point, the Panthers could choose to place him on injured reserve.

Dave Bolland

Panthers' Bolland Not Skating Yet

News: Dave Bolland (lower body) hasn't resumed skating yet, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: The Panthers are hoping to have Dave Bolland back in time for Saturday's tilt with the Coyotes, but that doesn't seem promising at this juncture. Bolland hadn't been producing much prior to suffering the injury, going scoreless and attempting only three shots in four games.

Panthers' Bolland (Lower Body) To Miss Another

News: Dave Bolland (lower body) won't play Monday against the Avalanche, Steve Goldstein of FOX Sports Florida reports.
Analysis: It didn't take long for the health-averse Dave Bolland to fall victim to his first injury of the season, as he'll sit out for the second straight game. Brandon Pirri fills in for him as the Panthers' third-line center once again.

Panthers' Bolland Won't Play Saturday

News: Dave Bolland (lower body) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Capitals, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: As anticipated, Dave Bolland wasn't able to recover in time from the injury suffered Friday night to suit up for the second game of the Panthers' back-to-back. Brandon Pirri will step in as the third-line center, with Bolland's status for Tuesday's game against the Avalanche in question.

Panthers' Bolland Leaves With Lower-Body Injury

News: Dave Bolland left Friday's game with a lower-body injury, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: The indication is that Dave Bolland isn't expected to play Saturday either, with Brandon Pirri in line to play in his place. He is listed as day-to-day for now, but the team should update his status in the future.

Panthers' Bolland To Play Thursday

News: Dave Bolland (illness) will play in Thursday's game against the Lightning, Steve Goldstein of FOX Sports Florida reports.
Analysis: Dave Bolland was held out of last weekend's preseason finale due a bout with the flu, but he returned to practice a few days ago and is apparently fit to play. He'll center the third line in his Panthers debut, with Sean Bergenheim and Tomas Fleischmann flanking him on either side.

Panthers' Bolland Out With Flu

News: Dave Bolland has the flu and was scratched from Saturday's preseason finale against the Lightning, the South Florida Sun Sentinel's Harvey Fialkov reports.
Analysis: Dave Bolland missed Thursday's preseason game with the illness as well, but with a few days of rest, he'll likely be available for the Oct. 9 regular-season opener against Tampa Bay.

Healthy Bolland Set To Man Third Line For Florida

News: Dave Bolland (ankle) is expected to center the Panthers' third line this season, Harvey Fialkow of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: The five-year, $27.5 million contract the Panthers gave Dave Bolland in the offseason seems like a steep overpay for a third-liner, especially for a player coming off a significant ankle injury. The Panthers have more talent on the wing than most believe, but the move from Toronto to South Florida likely won't dramatically jumpstart his production. That being said, he has shown the capability of producing around 40 points in the past, so a decent buy-low window could exist for him late in deep-league drafts.

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.
