Dobber Hockey: Bouwmeester speculation, Volume 3,245.

3

From Jeff Angus (and I'm a few days late on posting this): The Florida Panthers took a big risk when they decided not to move Bouwmeester at the 2009 trade deadline. He was highly sought after by a number of teams, and the Panthers could have fetched a pick, a blue-chip prospect, and a roster defenseman in return. Hindsight is always 20/20, and at the time the Panthers were in playoff contention and management needed to make a statement to both their fans and players that they were serious about winning. Bouwmeester (and the Panthers) fizzled down the stretch run, and once again they finished on the outside of the Eastern Conference playoffs. W4E say: nothing really new here, but any fresh bit of speculation is always fun. As for the Panthers - and whomever my be running the show - Jay's rights must be traded, preferably minutes before the Entry Draft, allowing the club to gain something from the inevitable loss. I remain hopeful the Cats can parlay a nice catch from a club desperate for BouwMania, be it with roster players, draft picks, or a combination. In any event, whatever organization wishing to grab exclusive negotiating rights (for a bit over a week's time) will need to dump salary in a big way.
