He is not what anyone would call a very well-rounded player. He is somewhat capable on one end of the ice and very average on the other. And anyway, complete players fit in everywhere, so your point does not have much merit.

I find that unlikely, given what I've seen of his play and the fact that his career has gone so far downhill in the past several seasons.
You're honestly not being fair or even giving Bouwmeester the credit for the player he is. We'll disagree on that. Is he overpaid? That's an absolute. Like I said earlier, if he made $4.5 million, fans would be all over what a great buy he is. The fact is, the Wings have some extra room, there is literally nobody in the UFA market, the guy can play 25 minutes a game and he's hovering around 30. I say he fits them to a tee. You disagree. That's cool and I can respect that. We shall see how it plays out.
