That's awesome and I wish him all the best, but one game means he's a capable backup which he already proved here.

For those interested in knowing how Bouwmeester is doing in Calgary, read on.

I just have to say one thing, and I know it's only one game but, Jay Bouwmeester is freaking awsome. He had 30 minutes tonight and was a +2. He was tremendous defensively and was always in position. He has an active stick and his ability to bring the puck up the ice is a thing of beauty. Him on the PP with Phaneuf was great as well. He is a workhorse and I am VERY surprised that he played 30 minutes and still skate like he did with 2 minutes left in the 3rd period.

Just thought I'd let you guys know how thankful I am of having Bouwmeester on our team.
Great, you told us what we already know. Jay is an elite defensive guy. Offensively he has 0 creativity and your powerplay will suffer with him. We don't want updates throughout the season because were bitter about how the guy ****ed us. Move along now.

More letting the puck outta' the zone, and I think on both of Calgary's first two PP goals, it wasn't until Bouwmeester left the ice that the PP really got going and eventually scored.

Good response Laus. Defensively he's top 3 in the league, but my god how does he continue to get powerplay time? He scores goals/point on account of being the best skater on the ice and that's it, period.
