That's a terrible scouting report by a biased Buffalo fan.
But just for ****s and giggles... do Hal Gill's scouting report now, Takeo.

I don't believe for a second that Bouwmeester is better defensively than Chara was at that age of 24-25. In fact Chara was considered one of the better DEFENSIVE DMAN in the NHL with his stay at home game and wings span, physicality then and was scoring mid 20's to 30 pts only.

He was of enormous impact player ever since he was traded out of long island, even in the first few seasons when he wasn't scoring as much as the "shutdown" guy. It wasn't also a coincidence that Redden started to thrive when he got to Ottawa. And as soon as he left via UFA Redden was terrible.
