Calgary fans are not overestimating Bouwmeester's value, the MARKET is overestimating Bouwmeester's value.

There are a handful of teams looking for a top-pairing PMD and very few (if any) available. The demand far exceeds the supply, which in turn will result in an overpayment.

The odds are in Calgary's favour should they choose to move Bouwmeester.

Not so. Statements of the sort of "I don't support moving Bouwmeester unless we get ____ in return" do not reference his market value, but rather the value they feel he has to the Flames.

Not having Sutter at the helm improves the odds a bit...

Maybe so, but somebody will. Doesn't necessarily have to be the Wings.

Personally speaking, I hope we hang on to him. Our D looks much better with than without him.

This. Ken Holland has proven he can go "full retard" mode. I would not put it past him these days.
