Jay Bouwmeester to any Eastern Conference team

He has to go, his time has well expired as a flame. Hes now on the flames 2nd pairing and really is no longer needed with his big contract. Wideman can actually run a PP for less $ and isnt soft as a marshmallow. Giordano is the flames cornerstone dman. Flames need to move Bouwmeester for a hard hitting physical dman cause this blueline is as soft as they come.

Bouwmeester's strength is skating and positional awareness, and he still gets beat wide regularly and gets caught shadowing the wrong guy at times. When you're one-dimensional you need to be REALLY good at that dimension and that's not the case right now. If he was in the hardest shot contest, Jay Bo would win the weakest shot. Guys on the farm could shoot better than him. Cmon Jay put some muscle into it, show it like you mean it. Show some heart boy!

And when it comes to either blocking a shot or getting out of the way, he does neither.

The guy's confidence is shot and he's a shadow of the d-man he used to be. Was hopeful that things might be different under Hartley but perhaps it'd be best for him to get a fresh start elsewhere.

JayBos game is best suited for the East where there is much less physical contact and more of a finesse game since he doesnt like physical contact.

So any takers?

I see some teams that would be interested in him

NYI
NJD
PHI

I think his contract devalues him to where he is more valuable to the Flames than he is to anyone would be willing to offer.

Giordano has been just as bad if not worse to start the year I wouldn't move him yet.

can't say i agree with this "east is much less physical/more finesse" B.S... but JBo certainly could benefit from a change of scenery.

he probably just needs to be slotted in as a 2nd pairing dman at this point, that or the complement to an elite #1 dman. Issue, of course, is that he's paid to be a top-pairing #1.

I could see the Islanders having some interest... replace Vishnovsky who no showed, and a small enough market (attention-wise) that he wouldn't have to deal with the fans/press getting on him for his high-pay average-play.

Flames could certainly use an elite young talent like Niederreiter... could be a fit for both teams assuming Snow has the ok to add that much salary (in light of the Vishnovsky suspension, fair to speculate that he does have a few M$ to work with, and for next season they'll need to add payroll anyways) and probably would require the flames adding something to the deal.

Captials are struggling out of the gate and have a few players i'm sure they'd consider moving (not so much b/c of the struggles in 2 games, but building on last year's play).

To CGY
Ward
Schultz

To WSH
JBo

probably not the return the flames would be looking for, but a 6.7M$ dman playing at a 4-5 level is going to be tough to move, especially with the cap reduction coming.

1. Vis and Snow have agreed, that Vis will join the isles after Vis' son has minor surgery on Feb 9th. Isles would rather pay Vis $3m prorated, then pay JB $6m+ prorated.

2. The isles aren't trading one of their top prospects, a kid with no leverage to demand a trade, for Bouwmeester. Not even if the Flames added a 1st.

I think the only way the flames move him is if they take half of his contract, cause at 3m itll be a lot easier for teams to accept. But no team will want him cause of his regressing play and 12 goals in 248 games as a flame and a -31 just isnt going to cut it as a #1 dman logging 29mins a night. Plus the fact he has no heart and has never made the playoffs, teams wont want to curse their club.

This guy is no more than a support dman, #3 on a contender, and really should be paired with a hard hitting rugged dman who can carry the physical load while Jay does his smooth skating. Cause afterall thats his biggest asset is his smooth skating.

The guy has no physical game in him, no offensive game in him, so really hes just a smooth skating, pokechecking dman with a long reach who is excellent at chasing down iced pucks.

interesting 1st point... is that rumor or has that been confirmed publicly?

2nd point - don't doubt it... though if they had the OK to spend some money, and could get the flames to add (be it a 1st, which in the flames case, could be a top-5 pick, or other asset of value to them), Snow could do worse than to move a kid who has amazing talent but is already expressing less than stellar desire to be there.

sometimes avoiding the pissing contest is better than wielding leverage like a hammer. Getting Jbo+, whose overpriced contract means little to the Isles (again, assuming Wang gave the ok to add salary), at the expense of a guy not on the roster who is potentially less than committed to being there, wouldn't be terrible.

Not saying they need to move NN... but looking at their contract/rpster situation beyond this year, finding some players a bit better than the Carkner/Boyes variety to add to a pretty talented group of young players, would not be a bad thing. JBo isn't as bad as some make him out to be, just isn't the #1 dman he's paid to be.

At that price, how much of his cap hit are you keeping on your books?

Calgary would do well to retain some of JBos salary while dealing him (like 40/50 percent). It will greatly increase his value/return, and Calgary aren't doing anything for the duration of JBo's contract anyway.

No one but contending teams would really move assets for 1,5 seasons worth of Bouwmeester, and contending teams cannot allow themselves to have as big of a questionmark as he has become with a 6.68 million caphit. At least not for next season when the cap plummets.

Vis joining the Isles after his son's surgery, has been confirmed by Vis in interviews and a fan chat.
It's also been confirmed in Newsday, by Botta in a tweet and Strang in a tweet.

Donovan's having his second straight strong season.
Reinhart kept in simple in the training camp scrimmage, looked good.
De Haan's shoulder injuries are a concern, but when playing, he looks so poised.


No interest in JayBo to LI. No interest in moving Nino for a mid-late first and/or JayBo.

Isles aren't helping Calgary get a top youngster for a disappointing,overpaid JayBo.

How about something around:

To

Volchenkov
+

To

Bouwmeester

Bouwmeester could come live in relative obscurity in NJ and possibly find his game again, whereas the flames get a hard hitting physical defender who blocks a ton of shots; both have fairly large contracts, although Bouwmeesters is probably a little worse at least in the short term. Devils have the space though; what else would Calgary want?

As a neutral fan having no bias, this is actually a very fair trade of a D-Dman for an O-Dman who both had some great seasons in years past but have taken a step back recently and a change of scenary/system could do them both good. I'm too lazy to look at Capgeek right now but I'm assuming Bouw makes about 1-1.5 mill more, but with a soon to be expiring contract. Call that a wash.

So 1 game with reduced ice-time means he is on the second pairing now? Good to know.

Cap hit is $6,680,000

40% of that is $2,939,200, which I'd say is more than fair. Bouwmeester's contract is up after next season. His actual salary is a hair under 6.68 (it's actually 6.6).

We don't want him.

If he were cheaper, sure, but then he'd cost more to acquire.

Why would any of those teams need the ineffective D-man that you describe? And at a large cap hit no less!

Why are the proposals almost always some ineffective or aging player with a large salary cap trying to be unloaded to a team in the other conference for cheap young talent and or draft picks?
