If JBo is such a difference maker loaded with potential, you've got to ask yourself why it more teams didn't want that guy on their roster. Why is Holland the only idiot? There's got to be 15 other GMs out there that could have easily outbid that offer and easily used a guy who is being puffed up more than Kronwall.
Check Jaybo's stats against his PP time over the years.

Very few teams looking to buy a defenseman can afford $7M next year. That drastically lowered the market for Bouwmeester.

Another thing to consider about Bouwmeester ... has this guy ever played with 1, let alone two or three, two-way centers?
