    To FLA: Lupul, Jones, conditional 1st rounder
    To Flyers: Bouwmeester

  2. Skeeterzx225 says:

    To pit- Bouwmeester and a prospect(Shawn Matthias)
    to fla-Ryan Whitney and Jordon Stall and a pick not high like a 3rd or 4th

    What you think? Both teams need help.

  3. intelligentscorpio says:

    Are you stupid to give up Staal and Whitney for a ufa?

  4. reinjosh says:

    it would have to be hartnell
    and a first no conditional

  5. Skeeterzx225 says:

    pit is desprate there sitting 4 pts out of a playoff spot. and dont look like the team last year they need somthing big to happen like NOW. bouwmeester should want to sighn with a team that will make the playoffs for years to come. and not all the presure is on jay in pit its all on crosby and gino.

    Van: Vermette, Picard, Comrie, 2nd 2009, 2nd in 2010. 
    Ott: Bouwmeester

    Ottawa signs J-Bo to a 5 year, 30 million contract.

  7. RossCreek says:

    Your joking, right?

  8. ZeroX93 says:

    phi: JayBo

    fla: Hartnell, Carle, and 1st rounder

  9. ZeroX93 says:

    phi: JayBo

    fla: Hartnell, Carle, and 1st rounder

  10. ZeroX93 says:

    Ott: JayBo

    Fla: Comrie, Vermette, Picard, Neil


    Fla: Spezza, Neil

  11. ZeroX93 says:

    Pit: JayBo and Stewart

    Fla: Whitney, Stall, and 1st

  12. ZeroX93 says:

    MIN: JayBo

    FLA: Gaborik and Brent Burns

    If the Panthers don't trade Bouwmeester and then lose him for nothing in July, it will take years for that franchise to recover from yet another extremely stupid move.

  14. RossCreek says:

    TO LA:    D Jay Bouwmeester
    TO FLA:  F Alexander Frolov, D Thomas Hickey & a 1st round pick


    TO LA:    D Jay Bouwmeester, F Nathan Horton
    TO FLA:  D Jack Johnson, F Alexander Frolov & a 1st round pick

    Obviously Bouwmeester would have to be signed to an extension for this.


  15. dumbassdoorman says:

    He might as well stay and sign in Fla for that money, they offered more.  At this point are more competitive team than Ott. which is what he is looking for.

  16. dumbassdoorman says:

    I must say those are well thought out trades and look good.

  17. dumbassdoorman says:

    True, but does any team NEED to make the playoffs more then the Panthers? Also I am sure they could trade his rights prior to July 1st. And the better he preforms in the playoffs the more he is worth and someone will pay.

  18. leafy says:

    If the Panthers had a realistic shot at the Stanley Cup, I would agree.

    But to suggest that Bouwmeester is worth sacrificing just to play in the first round is totally preposterous.

     When did Boowmeester start playing for Vancouver?
