Jay Bouwmeester to Edmonton?

We can give you Whitney straight up...

Jokininen is gone, we can give you Sam Gagner or Shawn Horcoff plus??

What would Jay Feaster want?

No thanks. No incentive for the Flames to trade him for Gagner.

Say no to Bouw!

We do not want him.

Edmonton's impetus would be gaining an unspectacular minute-muncher who would pair well with either Jeff Petry or Justin Schultz.

Giordano-Wideman
Whitney-Babchuk
Butler-Sarich
Smith

Smid-Petry
Bouwmeester-J. Schultz
Sutton-N. Schultz
Potter
Maybe add a 2nd or something

If you think Bouw is going to be traded for a year of Whitney, you are way off the mark.

Especially to a rival, and especially in a dry market where top defenseman hold high value right now.

Flames aren't going to trade a top pairing dman to their biggest rival (a division rival at that) unless it's a huge overpayment.

Start with next years 1st, Gagner, MPS and that should get Feaster listening.

Wouldn't take him for free. No, I wouldn't take him if the Flames paid us. He has zero playoff games. I don't think isn't a coincidence. The guy has no heart. Tons of skill. But no heart.

Yeah, any of those pieces for Bouw is a hugh overpayment. If that's what it's going to take to get an albatross contract, I'd rather stay away.

Bouw's only on the books for two more years and last time I checked, Edmonton wasn't anywhere near $70.2M in cap.

Also with the addition of Bouwmeester, your defense wouldn't be the laughing stock of the league.

Actually, it probably still would.

Good luck with that one.

Bouwmeesters contract severely lowers the trade value.

No need to burn up cash and cap space on a guy who we won`t want when we`re fighting for the division title in a couple of years.

Nice attempt at trolling to dude. In case you aren't aware (and its obvious that you aren't), the Oilers have a glut of defense prospects, many of who should end up as pretty solid NHL'ers, a couple of potential top pair guys. We are in the business of building from within, not taking other teams bad contracts.

^^^^^^^^^
I said it when he was a UFA, i keep saying it. DO NOT WANT. DO NOT WANT. DO NOT WANT.
i dont even think he has that much skill. he isnt that great of a skater for rushes, he has a long stride though. the assets that he has are his physical frame and long reach, long stride... putting that to use to be more than - at his very best- an Eric Brewer circa 08...is his issue. The best he will ever be is Eric Brewer circa 08.

Like I said, he only has 2 years left on his deal and the Oilers are below the cap floor right now.

We're 3.5 million under the cap. We haven't signed Yakupov yet, and he'll almost certainly get the 3.75 cap hit that RNH got. Plus we have to re-sign RFA's Gagner, Petry, Dubnyk, Peckham and Vande Velde. 4 of those are NHL'ers. We won't be below the cap floor. And there is no reason to add a big hit of a guy who we don't want.

And like I said, when we're contending for the division title in a few years (ie, the year after this coming season), we won't Bouwmeester's loser mentality crapping up the system.

I'm guessing the Flames will get less for JayBo than they got for Phaneuf.

There's a reason that there has only been one Edmonton / Calgary trade in history.


Bouwmeester won't be involved in the 2nd one.

Yep. Because nobody will trade for him, and then the Flames lose him to free agency.
