In a heart beat. Bouwmeester is still a fantastic player that can log big minutes. He would immediately be the 2nd best dman on the team. Kulemin is a middle-line winger, and Franson is a bottom pairing dman. It would be silly to not do this trade.
Phaneuf and Bouwmeester would be a fantastic shutdown pairing. Although it would depend on his price tag and if Calgary retained some of his cap hit. If we were to give anything significant up for him I would go nuts, since he isn't exactly a pressing need.
What/WHo would you offer for a top 10 pick in 2013?
If the Leafs were to miss the playoffs, and miss out on a top 10 pick:
what would you offer for a place in the top 10?
to which team? (of course this is speculatory, but I think there's a general consensus of who will be down in the basement)
for which pick? for which prospect?
