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.
What do you think of this deal?
To Flyers:
Jay Bouwmeester
4th round pick

To Flames:
Maxime Talbot
Rights to Matt carle

Is that overpayment by us? I think it is slightly but to get JVR were gonna have to overpay probablY
