Bouwmeester is not soft !

if you consider him soft then you also have to consider Gorges soft...

IMO Bouwmeester is the best young defenseman in the league. I've watched around 12 panthers games this year and he's clearly the best player every games i've watched. The best part about him is that he can effectively shut down the best players in the NH. Also his transitional game is something incredible to see. I haven't watched a lot of past great defensemen but I don't remember that last defenseman with such great skating strides.

I want him for our team but not just for this year.. I want him for multiple years. If money is the problem I would heavily consider trading Hamrlik to clear some cap space for next year.

This guy is great already and he's not yet entered his prime.

I wish Gainey could make a move for him and not let him go play for another eastern conference team.
