Philly may do JVR for Bouwmeester straight up. Personally I'd be really torn on that trade. I'm a HUGE JVR fan, the Flyers are my 2nd favorite team. I watch a ton of their games and I love the way that guy plays. I'd be super pumped if he became a Flame. I think he's every bit as good as Bobby Ryan, he just had terrible luck last season. I think if he plays with Giroux next year all season that he'll break 70 points pretty easily.

It would suck to lose Bouw, but I'd love JVR. Opponents of this trade from the Flames perspective will say we don't need another LW especially at the cost of Bouw, and thats a valid point. But we don't have a single player like JVR on the Flames right now. He's a BIG forward, has great speed and has one hell of a shot. He also goes to the dirty areas and is a good front of the net presence.

I'd do it, others wouldn't want to though. I just think he has tremendous upside.
