I'd tend to agree with the "poor man's Lidstrom" description. However I wouldn't say "poor" - I'd say "thrifty".
Not in the least bit does Bouwmeester deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence as Lidstrom. Bouwmeester had in common with him only durability and the ability to eat up a lot of ice time. In terms of every other positive quality, with the exception of speed, he was worlds behind Lidstrom.
