He'll be a nice addition for Calgary if they can sign him.

I think last summer Tampa did it with Radim Vrbata who later went back to Czech Republic. They also traded for Brian Rolston's rights but couldn't get the deal done with him.

Malone and Roberts had their rights traded from Pittsburgh to Tampa Bay last year and signed.

If Calgary does sign him, they'll have a hell of a first line with Phaneuf and Bouwmeester.

I went to buy some camouflage pants the other day but I couldn't find any.

If Bouwmeester is signed, I could see Heatley ending up in Calgary with Phaneuf going the other way.

That's what I was thinking as soon as I saw this deal.

Likewise.... Heatley-Jokinen-Iginla would be quite the trio

Yeah, if Bouwmeester signs with Calgary you can bet your last buck he'll be first on the list of upcoming McFarlane action figures. f***, they're releasing one of Luke Schenn in the next group. Schenn before Franzen-- I'm not kidding, you can go check the website for the pure insanity tongue.gif

Here's something to look for...

If Calgary can't sign Bouwmeester...

Ottawa signs Bouwmeester.

If they do, Kuba is traded for a second/third line forward, a second rounder and maybe a prospect.
Schubert is traded for a pick or a third/fourth line forward. Ottawa deals with Heatley later.

No one is going to give Ottawa a decent package for any of those guys when they've put themselves a couple million over the cap by signing Bouwmeester, and why would Bouwmeester want to go to a sinking ship of a team anyways? He wants to go to a team with a future, not 2/3rds of a 1st line and a couple of shutdown Dmen.

If Bouwmeester doesnt sign with Calgary, he'll go to Edmonton or Toronto.

Another big move by the Flames without concern about the depth. They got Iginla, Jokinen, Bouwmeester, and Phaneuf. Quite funny they got some good players but never get past the first round since they went to the cup few years ago

Don't be frustrated by the present situation. Think positively. Good thing will happen to you soon

As of right now all the Flames have done are acquire his rights. They have yet to sign him. That may change soon.
