I'm not sure how they could afford him.

NHL teams can go 10% over the cap in the summer, but im not sure when they have to get down, maybe training camp?

Either way they would have to pore some fat to get him signed.

I dunno, this is one team that I suspect wont get him signed before July 1st, they will try damn hard, but I suspect they wont get it done.

No, they just have his rights.

They can talk to him exclusively until July 1st.


He is a UFA on July 1st and Calgary has NOT signed him yet.

If CGY can't sign him by July 1st, he'll still be UFA.

They traded for his exclusive negotiating rights, until he signs an NHL contract he is still a potential UFA.

My guess is that Calgary will try to get him to sign a contract that is below his market value but that JayBo will ultimately make it to July 1st. At least I hope so.

Sources say the Florida Panthers have been told by Bryon Baltimore, Bouwmeester’s agent, that there will be no early rights signing, as his client wants to test free agency waters on July 1.

after all the information we've heard from all of these agents in the past while, I will wait until July 1st before I believe it!

if true though, it could be the best case scenario for the Canucks... the Flames moved down the draft to get that 3rd round pick, paving the way for the Schroeder pick, which they lost for nothing, as they see the coveted FA sign in Vancouver

Not so fast. Malone and co. said the exact same thing last year and ended up signing with Tampa early. At this stage in the game, I don't trust anything an agent has to say.

True. And even if his agent was being honest, I'm sure his mind could be changed with a killer offer from Calgary.

Still, it's fun to dream...

Well Malone also got more money from Tampa than he or his agent probably ever expected in free agency. Trading for rights is stupid, even if you do sign the player you have to pay full market value+ just to get them to give up testing free agency. Timonen, Hartnell, Malone all had to be well compensated.

I don't really see Bouwmeester taking a discount at all if that's what Sutter is hoping.

Keep in mind Tampa Bay gave a pretty lucrative contract to Mr. Malone and Co. The Flames can't afford to do it and well if they do they'll be in cap hell for the next 4-6 years they sign him.

Either way this is a win-win for 'Nucks fans. If they don't sign him it takes out one more Western based team come July 1, and if they do? Well the Flames will be in SERIOUS cap trouble for a long time.

Oh yee of little faith. Have you forgotten how much an expert Sutter is in managing the cap?

This is the only thing I can figure.

Assuming the Flames sign Bouwmeester for anywhere near the reported number (and intend on keeping Phanuef) they are going to have some terrible forward depth next year. Cammi gone, Bertuzzi gone, Langkow most likely having to be dealt. You'll basically be looking at Igninla, Jokinen, Bourque, and a bunch of third liners.

An odd move by Sutter. There have been a couple head-scratching moves from GMs at the draft this year.

I never said that he was brought in just because of that...

and people wonder why I can't help by provide every detail in my posts

Phaneuf struggled last year... but he's still a top end talent that was signed to a huge contract... if you're bringing in a coach that did play a big part in his development before, doesn't it make sense that you'd at least try and see if he can find his game back under a coach that he was very comfortable with during a key part in his development, instead of trading him now after he's coming off a horrible season, tied to a big contract?

that would make sense to me... and that's why I tend to believe Darryl Sutter when he said quite clearly that Phaneuf is not going anywhere when he was asked by reporters just a week ago.
