At the very least, the Bolland contract will be a gigantic win for the advanced stats community. Every GM and owner should be asking themselves "what happened?" when he is fvcking awful right away.
It was funny listening to Simmons and Dellow going at it on the radio today. If no one heard about it, they should search for it on twitter. As dumb as Simmons is, when you think about the buzz Bolland is creating and how little Gabrovski was getting last off-season, well more GMs are agreeing with Simmons and missing the point completely.
I look at the fancy stats with a bit of skepticism, but this radio host is moronic to the point that it must be an act. The caller could have done himself a favor by saying how Clarkson's playoff success on 2012 paid off for the Leafs this year.
At the same time, is Bolland really creating a buzz, or is it just the Leafs being stupid again? I mean I've seen tweets that talk about a lot of interest from different teams in Mark Fayne, but nothing like that about Bolland.

Hello fellow American. This you should vote me. I leave power. Good. Thank you, thank you. If you vote me, I'm hot. What? Taxes, they'll be lower... son. The Democratic vote is the right thing to do Philadelphia, so do.
How do you spot risk? How do you avoid risk? And what makes it so risky?
