If Bouwmeester is available, we should do everything we possibly can to land him.

For those of you who say Bouwmeester isn't an upgrade on Pitkanen, JayBo is a rock. Three seasons in a row he's played 82 games. Pitkanen is made of glass. Just having Bouwmeester in the lineup for 15-20 more games is worth it.

They're thin up front now with Jokinen gone and have some nice D depth, so I don't think they'd necessarily demand a D in return. I think Florida asks for Gagner and would settle for Cogliano.

How about this:

Cogliano, Torres, and Smid for Bouwmeester?

Bouwmeester-Souray
Pitkanen-Gilbert
Greene-Grebeshkov

That's a sick blueline.

I think this would get it done.

Cogliano+Torres+Gilbert for Bouwmeester

Bouwmeester-Pitkanen
Souray-Grebeskov
Smid-Staios

I think that's too much to give up. Gilbert swings that trade very much in Florida's favour.

If we add Gilbert, they add a first rounder.

Here's my offer

Horcoff + Pitkanen

for

Bouweemester

Provided Jay Bo is willing to sign a contract extension here in Edmonton.

There seem to be rumblings that he doesn't want to resign with Florida, so this is a situation where I think Katz could put in a phone call and explain what we're trying to do here.

I love Horc's game this past year, but with all these centers (Gagner and Cogs) I don't think long term we have cap room for them all.

Might as well get a crown jewel to build your D around I say.
