We can move people or bury them in the minors. If Bouw wants to come home, we'd have to make room somehow. After all, here he wouldn't have to be "the guy" right now as we have Souray and Lubo as vet leaders on the D. Plus all of his friends and family are already here and he summers here anyways. He just wouldn't have to move at the end of the summer.
And as a side benefit for the Oilers, having a Bouwmeester, Souray, Visnovsky, one of Gilbert/Grebs top 4 puts their D in contention with any in the league, outside of Detroit.
Three words= salary cap hell. Edmonton is not the Wings of the 90's/current Wings ;with or without Bou.
