I'm all for making a deal that improves the team, I just don't think trading for Bouwmeester accomplished that.
I think Bouwmeester improves the team a lot.
But no, he's not the ideal fit.

And I don't think upgrading D alone is worth it. If Holland is going to trade kids/picks, he needs to also upgrade our 2nd line RW
