Which teams are in competition with Canadiens for a defensemen?

Montreal is looking for a defensemen. Other teams are in competition with them. I know that Boston, Philadelphia,Tampa Bay and Edmonton are three others mentionned. Rumors are that Montreal is looking for one of those guys: Bouwmeester,Kaberle, Morris, Pronger, and even Ryan Withney. Rumors only at this time. But considering the other teams in competition with Canadiens, is it possible to find an offensive defensemen able to play on power play?

I don't think Whitney is available. Pittsburgh's defensive game was a major reason they lost to Detroit last POs.

If anything they should be going after a D not moving one of their top 2.

Almost all teams are looking for defense help.

The probably is there is a lack of good quality Dmen available so the asking price will be high.

It is my point, the Canadiens are not the only team on the ice.

Take Bouwmeester for example. According to Pierre Lebrun, ESPN, a few teams are "kicking the tires" on Jay Bouwmeester (among them Calgary, Philadelphia, New Jersey and Vancouver) but the Panthers won't move him unless they get a deal they like which both helps them now and in the future. Philadelphia would like to add a big body on the blueline, but the Philadelphia Inquirer reports the team doesn't have enough cap space to acquire a big-name defenseman. According to the Inquirer, Holmgren is going to have a hard time trying to get injured center Danny Briere under the cap when he returns off IR. So we may discard Philadelphia on Lebrun's list.

According to the Miami Herald of today, General manager Jacques Martin said Saturday that talks with pending free agent Jay Bouwmeester are ongoing, although he wouldn't commit to what he would do if Bouwmeester doesn't sign with Florida before the March 4 trade deadline. Bouwmeester would likely be a hot commodity on the trade block.''If it's something that helps our hockey club, it's something you have to do,'' Martin said. ``We're always trying to improve our team.

Panthers color analyst Denis Potvin believes the Panthers can't afford to trade Bouwmeester, but the team might not have any other choice. He believes Montreal will win the derby Bouwmeester,''Montreal have a lot to offer to Florida,young talented players like Maxwell,D'agostini,Gorges,and 1st pick Pk Subban,are mostly what Jacques Martin is looking for,the Panthers have to rebuilt and it starts now''...... (the Florida Tribune, 14 february 2009) An NHL executive says he believes the Panthers "have to trade" D Jay Bouwmeester at the deadline. The club would likely get a roster player, prospect and a first-round pick in return. (Ottawa Sun,15 february 2009).

The Canadiens are a serious candidate for trading with the Panthers but Spector doubt the Panthers will shop Bouwmeester if they're still in the playoff chase in two weeks time. Their asking price for him is getting steeper the more their chances for making the post-season improve....Conclusion: it is not evident that Bouwmeester will come in Montreal.
