I think trading for J-bo would be a bad move. Sounds like a Stuart trade all over again. The price to land him is very high, and with rumors that the cap is going down next year the Flames may already be faced with shedding salary. This would make J-bo a rental (unless as previously stated, we trade away Regher or Dion). So why would we trade an arm and a leg for a rental? Besides we don't "need" him, our D is probably the most solid it has been in a long time. The are other options out there that would serve the purpose for much less.

As far as for a centre, I think the Flames should wait and follow the Forsberg scenario.
