Lets say we trade for Bouwmeester. I could easily see us doing the same thing to the defense that we do with the forwards and balance our the even strength playing time even more.

Cole-Pietrangelo
Jackman-Shattenkirk
Bouwmeester-Polak

All the pairings can play around 17 minutes of even strength. Cole, Jackman, and Polak don't touch the ice on the powerplay; and Pietrangelo, Jackman, Polak, and Cole/Bouwmeester take care of the PK.

Just a thought, but it allows Pietrangelo to dominate the special teams part of the game, and gives us the best balance in even strength partners.
