Bouwmeester is one of those guys who is actually a pretty effective hockey player but who still continually gets criticized for his shortcomings. He's obviously not worth the money he is making but given the Oilers have some cap space, I'd have no problem with them bringing him in to replace Whitney (or to compliment him) as a top 4 option on the blueline.

He obviously doesn't have a lot of natural offensive instincts but he still makes a great breakout pass, is steady in his own zone, and can play as many minutes as you need to give him. To be honest, given our offensive depth, he's pretty much exactly what we need on the blueline.
