Dougie Hamilton does what he wants.

The restricted free-agent defenseman, who was traded from the Boston Bruins to the Calgary Flames in a blockbuster prior to Friday's NHL Draft, had a 'very significant' offer on the table from the Bruins prior to the trade, which he rejected.

Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman has the details of the offer in his latest 30 Thoughts column.

From Friedman:

The best information I can give you is it appears the team offered six years and $33M to Hamilton, while the response was about $2M per year higher.

Hamilton, 22, was drafted 9th overall in the 2011 draft and is considered to be one of the top rising D-men in the game, recording 42 points in 72 games this past season.

The Flames have until July 1 to sign the blue-liner.
