For the love of god Jay Bo is not has bad as most of you guys have him out to be. He would thrive on our team, most of you would be suprised. He would be a soild top 4 defensman and would help this team HUGE come playoffs. For me the question is why give up so much youth for another d man. We are already loaded on defense prospects and we just landed DeKeyser. You guys can stop worrying tho because there is no way Holand will add Jay Bo. In his mind It just doesnt make sense for the price. I would differ from that and go ahead and make a trade.
I would like holland to add a scorer like Cammy or Loui Eriksson ( or anyone good) as are offense needs a huge boost. Everyone is talking about are defense needing an upgrade because of the lidstrom and stuart departure but IMO we need offense for obvious reasons.
In reality I dont think we will make a move beause of the "prices" which is kinda stupid because we have expenable prospects. in my mind we will see another early playoff exit because "we need a scorer" O and btw we will not be getting Yandle so everyone should forget about that. I gurantee it
this is why Bouwmeester would fit in well here. he doesnt play a grind game and we wouldnt want him to. He would be a soild skating offesive puck moving d man
I don't think anyone thinks he is terrible, nor do I think that people think he won't do well in our system... the main issue most everyone here has, is his cap hit. No matter how you slice it, he is vastly overpayed, and I personally do not want that cap crippling our team with the cap dropping next year.
