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.
If we trade for Bouwmeester, Cole is probably going back.
