Bouwmeester's contract is too rich for what he brings, and with Whitney reporting that he's signifigantly better, (

Personally, I think that Edmonton will move MPS to the right wing from the left, and his future role with the team is to play him on the third line as a PK specialist. (likely Smyth-Horcoff-MPS in the upcoming season.) He has size and defensive awareness, and Edmonton has Hall, Eberle, Yakupov, and Hemsky on the wings in the top six.
Magnus "Pisani" Svensson?
