Way to overpay. Jaybo is not a top 10 dman, i repeat, Jaybo is NOT a top 10 dman.

And chances are he will get paid like one.

1st and raymond + prospect, or 1st and ohlund + prospect is fair.

No bieksa, def no kesler/burrows/edler.
I disagree. Bouwmeester is in my top 10 and at 25 years old should be in Norris discussion for the next decade. The fact he plays as many minutes as any other player in the league and is the current NHL iron man make him all the more valuable. With Bouw's size, skating, durability and minutes played he covers more ice and influences the flow of the game as much as any player in the NHL IMO. If he keeps improving, look out.
