James Van Riemsdyk ($4.250m) / Claude Giroux ($3.750m) / Jakub Voracek ($3.550m)
Scott Hartnell ($4.200m) / Brayden Schenn ($3.110m) / Jaromir Jagr ($3.300m)
Matt Read ($0.900m) / Sean Couturier ($1.375m) / Wayne Simmonds ($1.750m)
Zac Rinaldo ($0.544m) / Maxime Talbot ($1.750m) / Eric Wellwood ($0.580m)
Tom Sestito (600,000)

Nicklas Grossmann ($3.500m) / Jay Bouwmeester ($6.680m)
Kimmo Timonen ($6.333m) / Braydon Coburn ($4.500m)
Andrej Meszaros ($4.000m) / Marc-Andre Bourdon ($0.900m)
Andreas Lilja ($0.738m) or Gus

Ilya Bryzgalov ($5.667m)
Sergei Bobrovsky ($1.750m)

I'd do it pretty easily. Both are overpaid based on their production--but Bouwmeester is like 5 years younger.

I've never been the biggest fan of Danny, though.

Honestly, I think the Flames probably laugh at this. If they move Bouwmeester, they need top-end prospects or a much, much younger piece than Briere.
