Certainly, one of the prized free agents on the market this summer is going to be Jay Bouwmeester, if he can actually make it to free agency that is. His value is so high, that it's almost expected that teams are going to make a run for his signing rights at the entry draft in a week, in order to get the drop on him signing a deal. In all fairness, I don't think this is a bad idea at all, especially for the talent that you're going to get when you pick this defender up.
Philadelphia, Montreal, Calgary, among others, have all been circling the rumour mill for Bouwmeester and for good reason. Philly and Calgary have been rumoured to throw in some pretty good names to go the other way, so it will be the Panthers decision on what direction they want to take in the era without Jay.
Just saw on Twitter that there is some breaking news coming out of Florida... fingers crossed for something good.
