Guys that have not missed a game in 8 years, eat up huge amounts of ice time as a 1st pairing guy, kill penalties, can skate really well just don't grow on trees. During his career his offense has been a disappointment. Still it is highly desirable to have a dependable durable big minute player that does not get hurt. Whether he gets dealt will depend on the price tag but a very high % of the teams in the league would like a player like him.

And lest you think I have an agenda I'm an oiler fan who couldn't care less about the Flames fortunes.
Use a guy primarily defensively and of course he's not going to put up stellar offensive numbers.

Bouwmeester is easily underrated.
