Maybe rushing wasn't the right word. Rather, I speculate as why the Flames are entertaining the thought of trading Bouwmeester at all preciously for that reason - he's playing his best right now so why are there rumors of him being a potential trade target? There's enough smoke by enough credible sources to suggest there's something going on.
