He has a deceptively sneaky wrister, he's a threat on the PP for the weakside back door and has the speed to recover when he pinches, and he's been going to the net which draws in defenders to open up our forwards down low in the offensive zone.

Wideman has been great, but Jbo been earning his 6.68million this year.

Last year I would of done it for Gus and a 1st, this year he's been our pillar so yes I would need more. Sutter stifled Bouwmeester's game, now were seeing the real Jbo.
Couldn't agree more,

JBo's been an absolute machine this year and I personally wouldn't want to trade him. But if he will not resign next year then we definitely should shop him. His value has definitely jumped compared to last year and its still early so we could see it rise even more. The only thing that brings down his value is that large salary but he's definitely living up to it after all these years so thats good to see.
