Ignoring salary and the cost in trade, I'd be OK with Bouwmeester on the Blues with a 2-year contract. I think a bit of hyperbole has crept into the discussion. I think Hitchcock could make good use of him, and he's certainly a significant upgrade over Colaiacovo.

However, with his contract, he has minimal trade value. Its not the worst contract in the league, but it negates most of his value in trade in my opinion. I wouldn't want my team to part with anything significant to acquire him.

If Armstrong found a way to get Bouwmeester, I'd be interested to see how the defensive pairings were sorted out. But I suspect any interest he's been expressing has been contingent on not paying a ridiculous price. Someone is going to pay Calgary for him, and I really don't think it will be the Blues.
