Bouwmeester is fast, and he's huge which gives him an amazing reach on the poke check. You can go Bobby Orr with this guy because he picks up speed and is too big for most players to knock off the puck. Especially when they're caught flat footed as they expect you to be passing it up to your winger and it's too late. Rocket of a shot that's accurate to be on net and not hit the glass. Fire one five hole, it'll either produce a rebound or go straight in. His breakout pass is only second to Pronger (who would be another amazing defenseman if he wasn't so slow).
I have players like Gretzky, but none of them put up consistent points like Bouwmeester. I've had a 8 point game with him before on the 2nd pairing D.
Hmm, good to know. Is the regular Lehtonen good? I'd like to trade my Kipper for him. I'll look into Bouw, thanks.
Just picked up Parros SOTW for $1,500, lol. Hei'll replace Cogliano on my 4th line.
