If the rights to Bouwmeester went for a 3rd and Jordan Leopold (and that was at the draft), the stakes to acquire a player under contract during the season and at the trade deadline becomes a lot higher. I could see him giving away a first and a prospect like Marshall or Bourdon for a Hamhuis and then watch as Hamhuis leaves because there's no cap space to sign him.
A 3rd and Leopold for the rights to Bouwmeester is a entirely different situation then one of our best defensive prospects and a 1st we dont have for a rental player we can't afford.
