I'm absolutely for a Bouwmeester/Gaborik trade. That's my best-case hope for a Gaborik trade. We'll badly need a defensemen like Bouwmeester after next season.
Forget about getting goal scorers for Gaborik. It isn't happening. Instead we need the best player possible in return, and J-Bo would probably that guy. If we secured the defense, we can concentrate on goal scoring through other ways, like free agency, other trades, and the draft.
