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 would definitely love to play with him. He's a skilled player and over the years he definitely has shown that he can score a lot of goals. I think it would work out well.
