So, we're dogpiling on the goalie sammy Hudler the defense the refs league bias against us coaching now? Ok.

Babcock is lazy and he sucks!

No real surprise here. All of the reports seemed to say he was close to signing with the Flames. I would love to see the financial terms of the deal though.

Edit: TSN now reporting a cap hit of $6.6 million per year.

Calgary just got substantially better. Who knows what this means for the playoffs. If I remember correctly, Bouwmeester's only played in a single playoff game since junior (possibly a single playoff 'series').

If they trade Dion it's a bit of a wash. Their PP will be less dangerous but they'll end up a stronger defensive team.

They should play it smart and keep Dion, he's at his lowest point in terms of trade value anyway and they don't need more high-end scoring forwards- they need more team chemistry and scoring depth.

Teams can talk to free agents starting at midnight, but no deals can be made until noon.

It is, but he would be making 6 million at the least, so they aren't overpaying by a large amount. This all depends on what kind of numbers he can put up over the next few years...

I would rather have Bouwmeester at $6.6M than Rafalski at $6M...

I haven't seen Bouwmeester play very much, so I have yet to see the big deal about him. Is he really worth $6.6M or is it more of a case of them paying him for potential?

Not really. For a Dman of his calibre, just entering his prime, and finally playing for a real team, its a steal.

Good to know we'll have a 35 year old Rafalski for 600k cheaper though. *facepalm*

I suppose compared to Campbell, that's a pretty good deal. I just hate see Calgary do anything positive tongue.gif

Yes sir, he is worth $6.6M...

I would trade Rafalski+Hudler+2nd draft pick to get him...

Hes a great young defennseman. Moves the puck well, big, uses his body, has some offense. And hes still young at 25 years old. I doubt he'll ever be the physical Dman that Pronger is, or the offensive powerhouse that Lidstrom is, but the important thing is that hes probably the most well-rounded defenseman under the age of 28.

And hes about 10x better defensively than Phaneuf is. But then again, many Dmen are.

Oh no doubt, Bouwmeester is a great defenceman. Campbell is mediocre.

It's 3 a.m. and here I come so you should probably run. (at least here anyway)
and with the deadline so near and no good Wings news I felt like we need something else to divert from all the hype LOL.
