TSN: Bouwmeester's rights to CGY for Leopold and 3rd Rnd Pick

Quote:

Jay Bouwmeester's days in Florida are over.

The Panthers have traded the 25-year-old star defenceman's rights to the Calgary Flames for blueliner Jordan Leopold and a third round pick.

Despite trade rumours that swirled around him on deadline day, Bouwmeester, 25, remained in Florida, playing out the final year of his contract, which allowed him to become an unrestricted free agent at season's end.

The native of Edmonton, Alberta played his entire six-year career with the Panthers after being selected third overall by the club in 2002. He had 15 goals and 27 assists in 82 games this season.

Wow. That makes the Leopold deadline deal look even worse for the Avs.

Yeah, not a high price, and they get a shot at someone they might want. Interesting deal.

Will Florida sign Leopold, though?

You'd think so, but still.

Bouwmeester
Phaneuf
Regehr

AND

Pronger
Timonen
Coburn

Flames and Flyers now boast some of the best defense in the league.

I'm not a huge fan of the trades for future UFA's. Does Sutter really feel that Bouwmeester wouldn't go to CGY if they were the highest bidder. I guess a 3rd isn't too much for a week of exclusive negotiations. What are the odds Leopold re-signs with FLA.

I think the Flames take the saying "You can never have enough defensemen" WAAAAAYY too seriously.

Calgary is going to have to be creative with Bouwmeester's contract to fit him within the cap. Also, someone likely will have to be dealt, likely Langkow or Sarich. The Flames also have some fat to trim (Vandermeer, Primeau) that could free up some cap space.

I guess Calgary will try and get rid of Vandemeer or Sarich now?

Phaneuf-Jbo
Regher-Sarich
Vandemeer-Giordano

Besides Vandemeer its solid.

Vandermeer is too expensive at $2.3M as a bottom-pairing defenseman. With Pardy's rise and his cheaper salary, I think Vandermeer is expendable. Sarich could also go because of his contract ($3.6M cap hit).

Great trade for Calgary if they can re-sign him.

Good for Florida for getting a top 4 defenseman assuming of course they can re-sign him. That would much more value than I thought they would've got for an impending UFA.
