Not a huge fan of the price, but Wideman definitely fills a hole for the Flames: we need more offence from the point, as well as that RH shot on the PP.
As for his defensive deficiences and how he played in Wash, it really comes down to how a player is utilized and who they are paired with - we shall see, I guess.
Also, with Wideman, I would think they would try to move Babchuk. And if so, looking at it as a trade-up, I don't mind the price so much anymore.
The thing that I keep thinking though, is: imagine if the Flames manage to sign Suter... not only would Suter and Wideman be a great pairing, but with the top 2 UFA d-men gone, the value for JBo would be off the charts! It would be sheer brilliance on Feaster's part!
