swimmerpuck Posted January 30, 2009 Report Share Posted January 30, 2009 Whatever decision Florida makes with Jay Bouwmeester isn't going to be made until the trade deadline according to Jacques Martin. I get the impression they still have hopes of resigning him actually. Jay Bouwmeester IMHO has a great supporting cast of defensive teammates. Without looking, the Florida Panthers have the highest scoring defensive corps in the league or close to it. His offensive teammates, especially Cory Stillman, know where to find him. Frankly.....the guy I like more is Keith Ballard and not because he played goalie last night. He's just very well rounded with possibly more grit. The guy is fearless. What I'd like even more than Bouwmeester or Ballard would be to have Florida's Peter DeBoer. I think that guy has done a heckuva job with an injured list that included at one time: Nathan Horton, Cory Stillman, Richard Zednick, Bryan McCabe and David Booth. Kinda funny because when those guys were out is when they started to turn it around. The standard was set high by DeBoer for those guys to come back. Maybe that's what Carbo needs to do too. In other words get Max back in the lineup. Okay......enough about the Panthers.......sorry for the rant. My bottom line is I don't think Bouwmeester will solve the Canadiens problems.
