Bouwmeester would make a solid second pairing defencemen and give us attributes we lack on the back end. He can also eat big minutes and I think he would fill in as a top pairing guy should injuries happen.

Chara – Seidenberg
Bouwmeester – Boychuk
Ference – McQuaid
Hamilton
The thing with those pairings to me is that one of those defensemen would have to move back in a deal for Bouwmeester. If they get rid of him, their top 4 would be Wideman, Giordano, Babchuk and Sarich. Good luck keeping pucks out of the net. I really think they'd want Boychuck coming back along with a prospect not named Hamilton or picks.
