Also, let's not forget that Bouwmeester is a few years younger than Heatley is, and that defensemen are more durable than forwards are. That should be priced in, too.
You are really digging for reasons why Jbos trade value is good, but you are forgetting about Heatleys contract (6 years left at 7.5 mill)
