-GMs try to avoid bringing in players who have earned a reputation of being "a pleasure to play against"

MAYBE, JUST MAYBE Feaster could catch a GM who is desperate and temporarily insane and simply unload him for next to nothing. But that will take luck and perfect timing. But as far as Flames fans wanting him gone and real tangible assets in return FORGET ABOUT IT.

These are more plausible Bouwmeester trades:

Bouwmeester, 3.33 million...........to Nashville..................Klein, 2nd

Bouwmeester..............................to Detroit.....................4th
So we trade a 2nd pairing d man on a home discount deal and a 2nd(2014, Montreal owns '13) for a 2nd pairing d man? Lateral move at best.
