No way in hell any deal gets done between the Flames and the Devils. Devils problem right now is they have too many defenseman and lack scoring depth. Trading for Bouwmeester will just add to our strength, while completely ignoring our weakness.
If Volchenkov or another Devils defenseman is going anywhere, the Devils would be demanding for a forward back. It's where we are really shallow. I can definitely see Volchenkov heading to Calgary in a separate deal, if Flames fans are interested in him, but the Devils would be looking for a top nine forward, preferably young.
It's not that I don't want to see Bouwmeester in New Jersey, I think a change of scenery would do wonders and his play fits DeBoer's system pretty well as the forecheck takes pressure off the D, but there's just absolutely no room, both on the NHL level and that we have a couple close-to-NHL ready prospects on the door step.
