I don't care what history tells me, If I'm GM and I'm giving up a young player, prospect, and a pick I want a guy signed for atleast 1 more year. The only reason teams go for UFA's is not because they choose too it's because they have to, knowing they're already going to be up against the cap next year. A team not against the cap, ie; Florida, Columbus, etc. would surely want the signed player over the UFA.
My guess is Bouwmmester unsigned and Kaberle signed will command a relatively similar package at the deadlione. Maybe we'll see, maybe we won't..
