What worries me about Bowmeester is that he's going to cost a lot and is a UFA next season. Remember the hype over Hossa at the trade deadline last year? Bowmeester is the type of player that can put a team over the top and he could stimulate the same type of interest. What was it Pittsburgh have up for him again? 3 roster players if I'm not mistaken. 2 anyway, and look at where they are now. No Hossa and short those depth players. (and out of playoff contention at the moment)

That scenario scares me.

That's why I like the Kaberle idea. Although he could be worth quite a bit too in terms of return but at least you have him under contract at a decent 4.25mil until 2010-11.

He also has playoff experience.

Either way, it's going to be tough to land one of these guys because some teams are going to pull a Pittsburgh and overpay imho. Gainey seems to shy away from these bidding wars historically.
