They always made the playoffs before he got there.

 

Calgary had lost in the first round four consecutive seasons before Bouwmeester's arrival. The inability to retool was in place already. It just continued on in Bouwmeester's time there since. I don't know how Bouwmeester is supposed to control poor management decisions.

Anyway we can get him and immediately get him to take a massive paycut?  

 

Otherwise, I say no.  Holland is cheap, but even I wouldn't make this move.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I think Calgary should offer him to Peter Chiarelli first, only have have J-Bo block the trade & force the Flames to send him somewhere else

If we trade for Bouwmeester I'm going to lose it.  Why take on that s*** contract for that s*** player when Yandle is supposedly available?

 

  Just wait, next thing you know we land Bouwmeester for nyquist, tatar, mrazek & a pick, even though the Pens got Jarome for Angostini and a wet fart.

Those two prospects better turn out to be the next Gretzky and Messier, or else I'll be forever pissed.   :lol:

Please God no.  Looks like we'd have to give up one of McCollum or Mrazek. For the former, MAYBE. For the latter,  no effing way. We need scoring help,  not defense; especially the pylon.

You wouldn't include McCollum in a deal for him?

Wasn't McCollum already written off for the most part anyways? If Howard stays consistent, we'll be fine in goal for 5-6 years. We can afford to lose a prospect at goal, especially if it's McCollum. Mrazek would be a little harder to swallow, which is also why he'd likely be the guy they wanted. I didn't see McCollum mentioned anywhere either.

I'd be in for getting Bouwmeester, just as long as it doesn't cost us Tatar, Nyquist, Smith, or Jarnkrok.

I would love to see J Bo here. Our defense is solid, but it isn't great. We still need a top two guy and he fits the bill. Plus, he would help our offense set up better than anyone else we have on the back end other than Kronwall.

We would have to give up a defenseman to clear space. Kindl, Patterson and a 2nd?

At first I wasn't on board with trading for Boumeester but if Calary is selling and we can swing a deal, I think Holland needs to aggressively go after him and a forward this deadline. My 2nd option for D would be Yandle but God knows what Phoenix would want for him, if they're willing to take offers on him at all.

 

Wouldn't it be fun if having Bouwmeester completely handcuffed the team in the offseason?



Totally agree. J-bo seems like it would be a very low maintinance move, in terms of fitting in with the team. Where as Yandle might provide a little more scoring, but also a lot of cursing due to bad pinches.

 

Low maintenance? Do you mean aside from the assets he'd cost and how much cap he'd eat up?

 

He's not a #1 defenseman anymore.

Bouwmeester would instantly become our best defenseman. If the price wasn't anything too outrageous, i'd do it in a heartbeat.

Any way Calgary can eat some of his salary or is that unlikely?

Offense? Are you aware that he has totaled 77 points over his past 246 games? No offensively-capable, top-pairing d-man on any team musters less than 30 points for three seasons in a row.

He's looked like a #1 everytime i've watched him this year.

The number of people who have made this claim without actually seeing the guy play is truly frightening.

 

Perhaps some are living in his stats of five years ago.

ryan whitney would be the perfect pick up forget  bouwmeester , he wouldnt cost as much to get and he would be a ufa and not carry a 6.6 cap hit next year

 

that being said who would be out of the line up if we got another defensemen??? gotta say i been really impressed with kindl and lashoff  smith's not going anywhere as well as kronwall and ericsson .... quincey would be out of the lineup when he returns if we got someone else???  guessing it would be lashoff and kindl rotating

Eh, I watch him alot. I watch the Oilers, Canucks & Flames quite a bit due to my location and the fact most of my family and friends are fans of those three teams.

I think he'd fit our style of play much better than that of the slow, grind it out style Calgary has played ever since he's been there. He plays shutdown minutes on that team as well, which hurts his offensive game, since all you seem to care about is stats.

You mean like using $6.8 mil of their cap space on Bouwmesster?
