Kukla's Korner Hockey

from George Richards of the Miami Herald,
There is a thought the Panthers secretly hoped Bouwmeester would sign an offer sheet with another NHL team this summer, giving the Panthers a chance to match the deal and lock Bouwmeester in long-term.
Since Bouwmeester elected to go to arbitration, he cannot sign with another team; Martin said the Panthers aren’t going to trade him.
‘‘We’re confident we’ll get something done,’’ Martin said. ``That’s our approach right now. That’s the way we’re going. We still are having discussions. It’s been a process that’s been good on both parts. It hasn’t been ugly. It’s been healthy discussions from both sides. We’re just trying to find a meaningful pay scale he’ll be happy with.’‘
