The Offers For Bouwmeester

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

The Canucks were willing to give up LW Mason Raymond and a No. 1 draft pick. The belief is Florida wanted either D Kevin Bieksa or D Alex Edler included and GM Mike Gillis wasn’t willing to make the move. That’s where the discussions ended for Vancouver.

The Flyers wanted to move either RW Joffrey Lupul or RW Scottie Upshall (who landed in Phoenix) along with prospect James vanRiemsdyk and a No. 1 pick to the Panthers. It’s believed Florida wanted LW Scott Hartnell as part of the trade.

There is risk involved for the Panthers. A first-round playoff fall doesn’t constitute playoff success.
