Meh. I dunno.
Is Bouwmeester much better with the puck than Coburn or Schenn. (Honest question--it has been a while since I've seen him). My sense was that his career trajectory was similar to Coburn's--elite skating, strong defense, a minutes-eater, but never developed a consistent offensive game.
Obviously Bouwmeester averages 10 points or so more a year, but he's also played on poorer teams.
J-Bo is way better with the puck than Schenn. Usually he is about the same as Coburn, but earlier in his career he showed a lot of promise. He can regain that I think that he would be great to have on this team. I'd deal Read and a second for him but only if there was some guarantee that he re-signed here. For all the Coburn haters, a deal like this would make Coburn expendable (though I still wouldn't want to deal him).
