Phaneuf to Florida Close

Eklund has it has an e4. And is saying that it is every close to being done. I want buy this, why would Calgary trade Phaneuf for Jay Bouwmeester's rights. Why not wait until July . (cap issues may be a problem).
What do u all think?

I think Eklund makes things up to get attention.

Only thing that is logical is, if they were to sign Bouwmeester and still have Phaneuf, they wouldn't get nearly as good of a value for him. Calgary would be up against a wall, in this case they're not really, so they can get a little more for him.

Then again this is Eklund.

I would do it if I were Calgary.

Phaneuf = overpaid chump with a bad attitude and no defensive skill.

Bouwmeester = all-around all star.

They are a better team if they get rid of Phaneuf, and MUCH better if they add Bouwmeester. If Sutter makes this happen he is officially the sharpest crayon in the box. People will say "wTF I'm sure he could have gotten better value than just somebodies RIGHTS?", but excising that 6+ million dollar salary of Phaneuf's is going to pay huge dividends in the future. If Florida adds anything of value to this deal it becomes truly exceptional.

If they manage to pull this off, it is a coup and it should make the Oilers management cry, because its exactly what they should have been doing. Move Souray or Gilbert for Bouw's rights and maybe a nice pick or add to get Horton. Makes us much better.

P.S.: Phaneuf is a coach killer with the worst GA in the the league. If Sutter is going to be coach next season, he's extra sharp for making this deal.

Phaneuf + for Jaybo's rights?

Why would the Flames have to add more than Phaneuf for Jaybo's rights? Eklund is such a tool.

Maybe its an additional salary dump. Most likely Vandermeer. Then Sutter turns around and re-signs Cammalleri. Absolutely genius, and the Flames kick our **** in next year.

Ek is a joke...

if Florida wanted Phaneuf they'd have to offer Calgary: Horton + rights to Jay-bo + pick.

E4 (supposedly) means he actually has some information.

All of his E1, E2, E3's are always complete ********, but E4 means he may have actually heard something and E5 means he read it on TSN.

Betting the farm that it doesn't happen. He's never correct unless he's just rehashing something a reliable news source has already reported.

Gionta/Oduya for Phaneuf

None have anything to do with compensation for Brent Sutter, but I have heard the Flames are interested in the rights to Gionta and Oduya while the Devils have serious interest in Dion Phaneuf

As much as I know it won't happen now because Mr.E4 said so, I would love Phaneuf as a Panther. Imagine a D pairing of Ballard-Phaneuf?? How awesome would that be. Then the Panthers need to go out and find a #1 center and we'd definately be a playoff caliber team.

How many teams are A) looking to add a 6.5 million dollar defensive liability; and B) have 6.5 million dollars in cap space to do so.

Then the next question is, How is Calgary going to sign Jay Bouwmeester when they are up against the cap? This trade makes sense, but only if they can package up a salary dump in Vandermeer to Florida. Then Calgary signs Bouwmeester and Cammalleri and proceed to win the division.

P.S. the third part is: how many teams are looking to add Bouwmeester if he hits the UFA, and how high will his price be driven up in a bidding war?

When did Dion Phaneuf become available?

I've heard he had a bad season, but why would anyone want to ever trade him?

Would you want to keep a defensively hilarious offensive defenseman with no offense?
