Not at all, and the Flames would not treat him as such.

HF is ridiculous, He has struggled offensively for HIS standards but even then he is a 30 point 5-10 goal guy that eats 27+Mins a night.

I find it funny how everybody criticizes the flames overall team speed but dont take that into account when discussing Jay's offensive production. The lack of overall team speed significantly hurts his game and offensive totals.

Bouwmeester was great tonight offensively by just getting the pucks towards the net and properly utilizing his speed to jump into the rush. He was dynamic all night long, now he just has to be allowed and encouraged to do so on a nightly basis by the coaching staff.
Maybe we are starting to see him adapt to the flames system.

And for the record, No I would not trade Bouw' for Kovalchuck. ( And NJ fans are complaining about Jay's contract?)

Zajac + and Calgary listens
