I didn't get the impression the Flames were hesitating to trade Bouwmeester at all, rather they simply hadn't yet received an offer that would make them approach Bouwmeester and ask him to waive. And since I don't trust Feaster's ability to adeptly determine what constitutes a good hockey player, I speculate as to why he's making the move given that he wants to keep the Flames competitive this season - is it plausible that a return that could not only successfully mitigate the loss of Bouwmeester but also make the team better right now? I don't believe so.
