If Holmgren wasn't willing to include Couturier in a deal for Weber, he's certainly not giving up him for Bouwmeester, I don't care how bad Philly's D is, that's a stupid move.

We seem to go through this all the time, saying that a certain player is on the market and that there's a bidding war so some other team is going to overpay massively to land the trade... and it really never happens, after it's done we usually look back and say "we could have offered a similar package and been happy". Look at Jeff Carter, Jordan Staal and Rick Nash just since this last deadline.

I think Blum + a pick is fair, don't forget that Calgary also gets rid of Bouwmeester's contract which is the whole point of moving him in the first place, if he had a better contract they wouldn't be shopping him in the first place.
