from Brian Biggane of the Palm Beach Post,
If a deal is made for Bouwmeester, it probably will be at or before the NHL Entry Draft being held in Montreal on Friday and Saturday.
Speculation in Philadelphia is that the Flyers would be willing to send 25-year-old right winger Joffrey Lupul to Florida in exchange for Bouwmeester’s rights….
Vancouver also is expected be in the running, and goaltender Roberto Luongo, who knows Bouwmeester well from their time in Florida, could be a selling point.
While Calgary already has a high-end young defenseman in Dion Phaneuf, there has been speculation the Flames could deal Phaneuf to Ottawa for disgruntled sniper Dany Heatley, leaving a major void on the blueline.
Edmonton is probably not in the mix because of repeated failures of other hometown products, who typically face ridiculously high expectations from the hometown fans.
