I'm not a big fan of Bouwmeester, but he has shown himself effective on the European ice surface at past WHC because of his skating. In Torino 2006, Bouwmeester wasn't the problem on defense, whereas less mobile defensemen like McCabe, Foote, and even Pronger struggled. He is also having a quietly solid season in Calgary from all accounts.

Should he continue his strong play, I would have no problem with Bouwmeester as 6th/7th defenseman.
