Flames fan in peace.

I was thinking about all the rumors of Calgary trading bouwmeester, and really I'm not to keen on that idea because he plays such a big part of our D and consumes so much minutes so I thought to my self of I was jay featser the only way I trade bouwmeester is for a 1C. Now bouwmeester is severely underrated and I know no one will want to give up a 1C for him unless he's on a bad contract. So it got me thinking and I figured the only possible 1C who is on a remotely bad contract is Paul stastny. He is young and I think he is expendable with you guys having duchenne and o'reilly and would easily be our 1C. Plus him and bouwmeester's contract are remotely similar. Both are being paid 6.6 the only difference is stastny has 1 extra year than bouwmeester, but the way I look at it with maybe Calgary adding a B level prospect or maybe a pick, a deal around statsny and bouwmeester would work.

Thoughts? What does Calgary or both teams have to add to make this trade work?

We've discussed this proposal before and we said nope. That decision still stands.

same division, Colorado builds up the middle, no way they trade Stastny to a division rival. Sorry but JBo is a career minus player, I know he eats up big minutes but I don't think there is enough interest there to warrant Stastny, who has only had 1 calendar year in which he "underperformed" his contract isn't that bad tbqh.

I'd take Bouwmeester I think he could be a good fit next to EJ, but only at a low price because he's overpaid by a couple million.

No way would I trade Stastny for him, but I have an odd feeling like the Avs might.

This part is where you make a mistake though because most of us don't think it's a bad contract. He hasn't lived up to it during 2010-11 but we still want the player and our value of him is still high. He's a guy that most Avs fans still see as part of the future.

Now David Jones + prospects and we're talking but Jones probably won't be moved after just signing a contract.

Flames should've gone after a guy like Ribeiro.

The Flames should just sign Mueller to be their #1 centre anyways. That's what the fans want. Give the people what they want, Feaster.

They always come in peace.

Only to rob us in the dark and steal one of our centers!

I hope Sherm has paid for a good security

Nah. Srsly. Bouwmeester might be an option if we strike out on Carle and the likes and management wants to do sth ( dont believe it)

But we would not give up much for him.

Sgarbossa, Gaunce and a 2nd is the most I would give up.

And only if we don't have better options than JBO.

This wouldn't work for Calgary as they are making a Cup run.

Never a fan of Bouwmeester, don't want him regardless of value. I'll admit to being biased though so I may be underrating him significantly.

I think it'd be more along the lines of Wilson, Prospect C and pick for JayBo if they need the cap space. Anything more than that and the Avs pass.

Now Leafs fan in peace (Before I take one of your centers)
So, a deal based around Phaneuf for Stastny? Kessel and him had good chemistry on Team USA, and Phaneuf is a mid#1. We could throw in Steckel if you want a McClement replacement.

I'd prefer Phaneuf over Bouwmeester because he can at least kill people lol.

Stastny isn't getting traded this season though...we finally have 6 skilled enough wingers to play with our 3 centermen.

Avs are gonna be running 3 scoring lines. I don't really think you can "label" any of our centers.

Bouwneester isn't really the cut of d-man we'd want with EJ, I don't think. I don't know if there's a better guy to acquire via trade though. J-Bow's value has to be at an all time low; it would make sense to get him now, but I just don't see it happening.

Also, I've come off the trade Stastny bandwagon a bit. We need him more than a Bouwmeester.

Yeah Feaster, and don't forget to hand him a complimentary NMC in his "welcome to Calgary" gift-basket.

Oh who am I kidding, he won't forget.

Truthfully I'd do it if Calgary adds a decent center prospect and a pick.

I think JBo would fit well with Johnson.

I know both of you guys came in peace but GTFO. We don't want to trade Stastny for J-Bo or Phaneuf especially not Phaneuf.
