2011 1st round pick
2011 2nd round pick

Boston acquires a power forward, who while is on the decline, his contract matches up nicely in terms of only 3 more years, when Seguin's deal will be up. Tanguay is a solid player who can help down the stretch.

In terms of value, the 2nd is basically fair value for Tanguay. Ryder is purely a salary dump in this deal, although he is on pace for around 25 and 50. Savard has played in Calgary before, and there is a chance he'd waive his NTC to go there. While people worry about his concussion issues, you have to remember it usually takes guys about a full season to recover after such serious injuries. His cap hit is also only 4 million, think about how many stiffs make around that or much more. Even if he returns as a 15-20 goal, 50-60 assist guy he is worth 4 million per. Hamill, some consider a bust, but the former 8th overall pick has 24 points in 31 games for Providence with 21 assists. Kid is showing well in playmaking ability and is pretty much NHL ready. Bodnarchuk is a good defenseman who again is close to NHL ready. Arniel is a gritty winger who can score as well. Some good building blocks for the Flames with Backlund.

I know Jerome has "intangible" value to the Flames, but remember he is not 27 anymore.
This proposal is too big. Again, we're looking for quality as well, not just quanity. Reduce half that package and include TO's first. Then we'll talk.
