I don't think this means the Flames have the luxury of trading Bouwmeester if they want to compete for a playoff spot next season.
Wideman is an improvement over Hannan & Sarich, but that's about it. If the Flames go into the season with Giordano, Wideman & Butler as the top three defensemen, then we'll probably get to see the Flames draft top five for the first time in franchise history.
