I haven't been the biggest fan of him, but he would help our d out greatly. He can skate the puck out of the zone and into the offensive zone, which we have only one other defender who can do that.
I believe he could become the 10-15 goal scoring defender he was in Florida. He really just needs to get out of that hell that is called Calgary. That team is just dreadful, and has been for way to long.
Maybe it's just me, but I wouldn't give a first or a blue chipper for Bouwmeester. He couldn't cut it in Calgary when they had a decent lineup and he's never had playoff success anywhere he's been (he's never even had playoff success in junior hockey). The last time Bouwmeester played in any sort of playoffs was 2004 - 2005 and in the 18 games he appeared in with the Chicago Wolves, he had 0 points. 0 points. If the Jay Feester is asking for a first and a blue chipper for Bouwmeester, he must be high because there's no way that Bouwmeester is worth both, let alone one of each. I'll say it right now - Bouwmeester will be a compliance buy out with that ridiculous contract of his.
