jl-1 Posted November 5, 2008 Report Share Posted November 5, 2008 Much has been said about Bouwmeester's status with the Panthers and rumours have been ongoing that he won't re-sign with them. But where will he go and how long before he's traded? Seeing their problems putting the puck in the net and the lack of success on the ice, how long before Jacques Martin pulls the trigger? November 5, 2008 | 3:07am ET Panthers GM threatens changes TheFourthPeriod.com Panthers GM Jacques Martin is disappointed in his team's slow start to the season and is considering trading some of his players, reports the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. The threat appears to be directed at the Panthers' veterans, who, for the most part, have failed to produce in the club's first 11 games. "When I look at our performance so far, I don't think it's good enough," Martin told the Sun-Sentinel. "We made some moves in the off-season, and some of our veterans have to give us a better performance." Martin believes his team needs to improve not only on its scoring, but its defensive game as well. "We've probably given up too many," he said. "That's the biggest concern. We look at our goals against (35) and it's not just one group, it's six guys on the ice doing their job." Among those struggling, Ville Peltonen, Brett McLean and Jay Bouwmeester have yet to score any goals, while Radek Dvorak, Richard Zednik and Stephen Weiss have just one each. Source.. I would go hard after Bouwmeester, but so would a lot of teams. I wonder what kind of return he will fetch... Of course, signing him could very well spell the end of the Komisarek era in Montreal, but he's a huge improvement over Komi. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
