My biggest reservation about Bouwmeester is that I have never seen him turn it up when the stakes are high (having never been to the playoffs is of course a big factor), and when he plays the Pens he frankly ends up Sid's ***** most of the time. Bouwmeester is a guy Sid just blows by. The problem for us when we face(d) Florida was/is Vokoun.

Anyway, last season with Florida when they held on to him at the deadline, he and the team withered away as the playoffs were very much in reach, and this season on Calgary once again he fails to raise his game down the stretch, going instead in the opposite direction, big time.

Obviously, he'd look very good on our blueline and he is a very good player, but I don't think he is close to deserving his present salary.
