Bouwmeester Signs One Year Deal

According to George Richards of On Frozen Pond, Jay Bouwmeester has signed a one year deal with the Panthers.

Updated 12:56pm ET (alanah): From from George Richards at On Frozen Blog

On the surface, this doesn’t look like the Panthers accomplish much since Jay would have received a one-year deal tomorrow anyway. Hearing the deal is for $4.8 million, and the Panthers felt he could have received as much as $5.5 tomorrow.

The one thing this does is create some good will between the two sides. The fact these two could come to some sort of agreement means Jay may be amenable for something else later one. Signing before going to arbitration eliminates some bad vibes that could come out of the hearing.
