But no, he's not the ideal fit.

And I don't think upgrading D alone is worth it. If Holland is going to trade kids/picks, he needs to also upgrade our 2nd line RW
I agree with that too (the last sentence) but if we add Bouwmeester I think it handcuffs us attempting to upgrade at forward without adding significant salary in both deals.

For all we know salary might be the reason the Flames took the Blues package over whatever Holland offered. Perhaps they didn't want to take Quincey's 4 million dollar contract when they are rebuilding and cutting costs.
