from George Johnson of the Calgary Herald,
Astonishing at it might seem, Sutter probably even underpaid.
In the hockey market, understand, Jay Bouwmeester’s a Picasso or a Rodin. These types of players don’t simply drop out of the sky and into your lap: A 25-year-old stud defenceman stuck in the bright and balmy, but still deadened hockey market of south Florida, who, you get the feeling, has yet to unearth the full might of his vast potential. A star who, in a nurturing environment, could be a super-duper-star.
Why, they’re rarer than photos of Darryl Sutter smiling.
The addition of Bouwmeester now provides the Flames with a Big Three—including Robyn Regehr and Dion Phaneuf—the envy of any organization around. This acquisition undoubtedly means adios to UFA Adrian Aucoin, and leaves the Flames’ blueline also manned by battle-scarred old warrior Cory Sarich and the handy Mark Giordano. If Sutter can get the young and improving Adam Pardy re-signed, it’s a very solid group.
