HF Boards rumor

Stupid thread, trading for a 7mil player, it's not 2001/2002...

Did you not read it? There were suggestions of trading Rafalski, ect. Not just Iginla to Detroit straight up.

Yeah trading rafalski who has a NTC, good luck... and we all know holland do not want to get a player with such a huge contract and ruin the team's future chances of going far

The more interesting part on there would be Mark Streit. I'd like to have Iginla, but there's no real way it's possible.

People were actually mentioning giving up Franzen. Franzen is way better than Iginla come playoff time.

Yeah Iginla's not a clutch playoff performer. He's got Jumbo Joe Symdrome.

I couldn't believe it either.

This isn't a rumor. This is one of those stupid "value of" stuff. The title should be "What would it take Detroit to get Iginla" not "Rumor: Iginla to Detroit?"

Really the only reason I put it as "rumor" is because it was in the rumor section of HF Boards.

I wouldn't want Iginla in the Winged Wheel in the first place. And then throw the numbers into the mix. It doesn't work now or in the future. And we aren't giving up Rafalski any time soon either. Ha..

Iginla could be acquired, but you would probably be looking at one of these three scenarios:

1) Trade Brian Rafalski (NTC) and perhaps another player making ~$1m

2) Trade a forward (one of Val Filppula, Jiri Hudler, or Dan Cleary) and a defenseman (one of Brad Stuart or Nik Kronwall) and perhaps another player making ~$1m.

3) Trade two forwards (two of Val Filppula, Jiri Hudler, or Dan Cleary) and perhaps another player making ~$1m.

None of those options are likely scenarios.

I don't know about you guys but I'd give up Val and Hudler for Iginla anyday.

I wouldn't. We'd lose depth, production and take on more cap hit.
