Jay Bow's Pee-Wee card if you can't tell by looking. I knew Jay Bouwmeester was an Oilers fan growing up, but I still thought it was funny to see this picture. I wonder if being an Oilers fan has subconsciously factored into his less than stellar career as a Flame? Hmm.
Bouwmeester is one of those guys who is actually a pretty effective hockey player but who still continually gets criticized for his shortcomings. He's obviously not worth the money he is making but given the Oilers have some cap space, I'd have no problem with them bringing him in to replace Whitney (or to compliment him) as a top 4 option on the blueline.
He obviously doesn't have a lot of natural offensive instincts but he still makes a great breakout pass, is steady in his own zone, and can play as many minutes as you need to give him. To be honest, given our offensive depth, he's pretty much exactly what we need on the blueline.
Remember months ago when bob stauffer said the oilers would make a wow player personnel move when the lockout ends some thought it either meant luongo or jaybo
So there is a chance he joins the oilers at the conclusion of the lockout. I think the guy gets more hate then he deserves
Anyone else think the 'concept' of peewee cards super creepy??
Who the hell would want to collect photos of a bunch of children
It is the Hockey Future forum...
All joking aside, dumping NHL players for the next great junior players is so passe, peewee players who haven't been over-exposed by the CHL are all the rage now. They just have so much potential! Plus - all those arguements that they'll grow a few more inches before they make the NHL finally make sense.
