I actually wouldnt mind getting Bouwmeester out of Calgary as long as it didnt cost us that much.
I think that J-Bo could find his game here much like Campbell did in Florida. I realize that he is over payed but it is only short term (2 more years) and we are in a financial spot that we could eat that cap hit and still add other players.
be about it!

Sheesh....I dunno about Nyquist for Bouwmeester.... I am sure Nyquist is on everyones trade list...I think Tatar is just as ready as Nyquist for the NHL, I wouldn't mind seeing him in a package, but Nyquist......on the fence...

Is Bouwmeester worth Nyquist? If so, I'd include Hudler's old buddy Cleary in that package...looking at Capgeek, damn thats an awful large salary of Bouwmeester's....I'd rather go for Yandle all out if I am including Nyquist...

I would definitely love to get Yandle, but if we cant I would go for Bouwmeester or Enstrom.

I would do a Cleary + Mursak for Bouwmeester. But no way I would ever include Nyquist.
be about it!

I really wouldn't want to give up Nyquist for Jbow.

Jbow would be a decent minutes eater, but I really don't think that the Wings will be better in the long run.

Our top-6 is crap.


You must mean our 6 D-men, cause other wise I'm calling Bologna. We have a lot of scoring depth now and a lot of guys who will be fighting for top-6 positions. Now take a look at our defense....

haha, yeah maybe should have been more clear.

Was trying to say none of our scoring depth have yet proved themselves to be top 6 material. Atm, I think we can only shoot for bottom 6 and go from there.

I don't thin there's a GM in the NHL that would trade for a top 6 forward in the situation we are in right now

We have four legit top-6ers (Dats, Z, Mule, Fil)
Then we have 5 other players who will be fighting for the last 2 spots in the top-6 (Sammy, Bert, Cleary, Brunner, Gus), forcing those guys to step up and fight for ice-time is a very good situation for our team. May the best man win.

And those who don't earn one of those spots will make up our 3rd scoring line....something we haven't really had recently. Not worried about our forwards at all right now.

campbell was overpayed but lets not kid ourselves he's way better than bouwmeester
