Bouwmeester Wants Everything To Fit

from Derek Van Diest of the Edmonton Sun,

This off-season Bouwmeester and the Panthers nearly went to arbitration, instead settling on a last-minute, one-year deal worth $4.8-million.

Once the contract is up, Bouwmeester is free to go play where he chooses.

“I think both sides were happy with it,” he said. “I wasn’t prepared to sign anything long term at this point. It was good not having to go to arbitration. I’ve done that once before and it’s not fun. It can leave a pretty bitter taste in everyone’s mouth.”...

“I know (free agency) is out there, but it’s not really a big deal,” he said.

“I just want to be in a place where everything fits, you’re happy and hopefully you can have some success.”
