Thats irrelevant to Bouw though as he still played far more minutes per night.
Bouwmeester does play a lot more minutes (PP time helps) but even with the extra 500 minutes he played last season he still only outscored Smid by 5 ES points and had the same amount of goals even though JayBo gets PP time and Smid gets virtually none.
Like I said, we all know Bouw under produces I am not trying to argue his has more offensive ability than Smid.
I wouldn't mind having Jbo just not at the expense of Gagner or Smid, not worth it.
And for the Flames we wouldn't mind having Gagner but not at the expense of our best defenseman. Looks like this is a non starter for both clubs.
