Even then that's iffy. The Flames biggest problem last year was having a top 4 that included Butler in it. If Butler doesn't drastically improve and Brodie doesn't develop heavily the Flames would still need to overpay for a UFA defenseman capable of carrying a lot of minutes before trading Bouwmeester. Otherwise they're forced to trade Bouwmeester for an underachieving defenseman capable of playing a lot of minutes, a lateral move at best.

A lot people have that blind hate for Bouwmeester, but moving him wont help the Flames if the team is left with only 2 bonafide top 4 defenseman in Giordano and Wideman.
