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.
Sounds like you over zealous. Generally its a package teams get for top players at the deadline. Usually a bottom six forward, late first round pick and a decent prospect but not top one. With cap declining teams aren't fierce like before to deal off their future for large caphits.
