I guess we'll just agree to disagree then as I don't see Bouwmeester as being that great, especially not a guy who will help you get a championship. We need someone more physical in their own end, and Bouwmeester is the definition of soft. Really pretty unbelievable for a man of his size.

Anyway, I'm not strictly opposed to moving Rask in the right deal, I just thought it was silly you would throw him in for the sake of having Calgary cover $2 mil of Bouwmeester's contract.
