Found August 10, 2012 on HockeyBuzz:

As I was digging around looking more information regarding all the Jay Bouwmeester trade talk, I noticed a similarity between the current Calgary Flames roster, and that of the Florida Panthers about three years ago.

Richard Cloutier: Bouwmeester an Oiler? Ummm, No

Dun dun dun...Another one bites the dust... Yes, Oilers fans, yet another NHL defenseman is not going to end up in Edmonton.

I have no idea what the Flames will get in return with the deal, but chances are it will be an overrated, old, overpriced...

Jarome Iginla’s Poor Puck Possession

Jarome Iginla is a future Hall of Famer. He is a two time winner of the Richard Trophy as top goal scorer in the NHL. Those days have long passed. 2004 was the last time he scored at that level. Since that time he has been in a decline. People have been discussing his decline since about 2009. The decline is more evident watching him play than it is from looking at his conventional...

Dan Spiegel: Epic Fail: Jacques Martin's Handling Of Jay Bouwmeester

Thank goodness for Dale Tallon. Thank goodness the Florida Panthers have a GM that knows what needs to be done and just does it. Thank goodness when it was time to face the music at the 2011 trade deadline he jettisoned many veterans and bad contracts. Thank goodness he started that trend at the 2010 NHL Draft (see Keith Ballard). At the 2009 trade deadline, the anti-Tallon...
