Franzen and Miller or Eaves or Mursak + late draft pick

Our 1st in a very deep draft is not worth Bouwmeester.

Really?

So it's guaranteed that this late 1st rounder will be a top 6 forward, or a top 2 Dman?

Not directing this entirely at you Crymson - however I get a :lol: at those here who I feel over value Filppula, and under value Bouwmeester.

Bouwmeester is absolutely nothing special, dude. He can eat minutes and he rarely sustains an injury. That's all that makes him special. He's average defensively and below-average offensively, and the Flames are going to ask a boatload for him. No thanks.

A late 1st round draft pick is your opinion of a "boatload"?

If you believe others here, it won't be a late pick.

I just have a feeling that the asking price will always go up when it's Holland calling any other gm in the West. What team haven't the Wings faced in the playoffs the past 2 decades that rightly or not would consider the Wings a rival in some respect? Look at what happened with the Quincey trade. According to most reports I saw, Colorado wouldn't even talk to Kenny which is why he had to get a third party involved. Who here would even call the Avalance a major rival any more?

After 21 straight years in the playoffs, I just think that the vast majority of teams in the West want a take a chunk out of the Wings even when it comes to trading with them. So Kindl, a 4th liner, & a pick for JBo? I don't think that will get it done at all & if it's going to take a Flip+Nyquist+pick or Flip+Smith+pick package to get him or a Yandle, I for one would lean towards not doing it.

The Flames will be asking a lot for J-Bo from anyone. I find it very unlikely that he'll be moved, as they've currently got all of the leverage and no real reason to trade him unless a great package is presented to them.

Why would the Flames trade this guy? With Weber, Karlsson and Suter locked up for quite some time, Bouwmeesters value is as high as it has ever been and it is not like he's a liability. The guy can give you top minutes and paired with another top 2 defender I think he could beo ustanding once again. You don't move such players safe for ridiculous overpayment.

WE're talking Nyquist+Filpula+ 1/2 2013 here.

Agreed. It's not some personal vendetta against Holland. If the Flames are going to trade away their top d-man they're going to want big value back.

The only real thing that knocks down his trade value a bit is his ridiculous contract. And with what free agents are getting, it suddenly looks less ridiculous than it was.

And the fact that there's only 2 years left on the contract makes it less ridiculous as well. The Flames are now around $3.5m under the current cap & have 8 defensemen under contract. They aren't in a situation where they HAVE to trade Bouwmeester, let alone any defenseman. The reasoning I've seen that they might is that they want their top prospect TJ Brodie up all season & in the lineup as a full timer. If that's the case, they would probably need to dump a d-man but that doesn't mean it will be JBo.

Roszival and Kubina must be asking for too much term and money right now. I expect Kenny to sign 1 of them to a 1 year deal soon.
Jordan Tootoo will wreck shop.

We need someone like Parise that can penetrate the box.-blueadams

This is fun...ugh. According to ESPN:

"Is Jay Bouwmeester Michigan-bound?
According to the Calgary Herald, word has it the Detroit Red Wings have made a pitch for the Calgary Flames defenseman. Losing both Nicklas Lidstrom and Brad Stuart this offseason, the Red Wings have a gaping hole on the blue line and few decent free-agent options. GM Ken Holland has an excess of solid forwards to offer the Flames in exchange.
The Anaheim Ducks, Nashville Predators, and St. Louis Blues are also looking to add an experienced NHL D-man. And GM Paul Holmgren of the Philadelphia Flyers could still be open to making such a move after losing out on Shea Weber."


This is the one and only time that I unequivocally want Holland to lowball himself out of the market. Just what we need, an offensive defenseman who doesn't score much, whose cap hit is outrageous, and who's signed for two more years. Half of our remaining 13 million dollars spent on Jay f****** Bouwmeester. Puke.

The Herald is referencing a rumor started by a random, disreputable hockey blog.

Cool, I didn't really feel like digging into it, so I'm glad you did. It didn't really seem like Holland's MO but I'm glad for verification. Thanks for the heads up.

I think Bouwmeester is an incredible athlete who is lacking in hockey sense and too soft to ever be a top NHL defenseman
