Moving Bouwmeester is a good start. Does it make them less competitive? Of course. But being less competitive than "Not Competitive" when it makes you a better team in the longterm obviously makes sense.

Getting good value back for Bouwmeester, Kipper, Iginla, Tanguay, etc in the next 1-2 years will give Calgary a drastically better looking future in 2-3 years than if they just held onto those guys. They're not going to win with this current group, and given the age structure of the core guys, they don't have enough time to build around them anymore. Their time is out in Calgary IMO, at least if they want to do whats best for the team longterm.
