If it looks like this team is going somewhere, he might sign for a year, maybe two...He's only 25, it's not like he's 35.
FSN-FL's Denis Potvin on potential UFA-to-be Jay Bouwmeester
"We were dumbstruck yesterday afternoon when Panthers TV analyst Denis Potvin, the Hall of Fame defenseman, said during the Florida vs.
HamiltonMontreal game that Radek Dvorak was killing penalties so well, he might get a shorthanded goal — and a minute later, he did. There’s a guy who obviously knows what he’s looking at. Unfortunately, we had to sit through the rest of the game listening to Potvin butcher players’ names (if not forget them altogether), distort hockey history (saying the 1955 Richard Riot resulted from N.H.L. President Clarence Campbell suspending the Rocket for only one playoff game and maintaining Montreal would have burned to the ground had it been for the entire playoffs — well, Denis, that suspension was for the entire playoffs) and be far less insightful than he obviously can be."
