Panthers hold on to Bouwmeester

Wednesday, 03.04.2009 / 3:16 PM / 2009 Trade Deadline

NHL.com

Jay Bouwmeester is staying put.

The big defenseman, an upcoming unrestricted free agent this summer, was a hot name in the rumor mill prior to Wednesday’s deadline, but Florida Panthers GM Jacques Martin opted to keep his team together for a run at the playoffs and will deal with Bouwmeester’s future another day.

Quote of the Day

I'm hoping Bob [Murray] didn't go out and get Dany Heatley just to get someone. I'm sure he's excited and motivated.
