Bouwmeester's having his best season as a Flame. He's still relatively young, only has 1 year remaining on his contract, and eats up minutes like crazy! The demand for puck-moving defencemen is also sky high.
Expect the Flames to get back at least one (maybe two) 1st round draft picks, a blue chip prospect, plus a young roster player! And then wait till the rest of the guys (Iginla, Kiprusoff, Tanguay, Cammalleri, etc.) get put on the block!
My mouth is already starting to water.
If he had more then one year left I could see the Flames getting more. His cap hit is 6.25mil and after next year he is a UFA--so what was the rate for a rental last year?
I think you are looking at a Kaberle return for him
