You play this game to win Championships... Adding a Jay Bouwmeester to a really good core, gets you closer to that goal. He's a top pairing guy. He allows forwards not to work as hard to get to the puck. Much like Brad Stuart did by the way. Dont believe me, Im sure Babcock or Holland have discussed how good Stuart was in moving the puck out of his zone. First of all, they're rarely available. Secondly, the Wings have a deep pool of talent compared to most teams in the league. Acquiring him wont set their future back at all. The chance one or two of their D prospects reach his level is pretty low.

Like I said, we shall see.
