Iginla may/may not have added Detroit to his trade list

There is good and bad for the Wings regarding Iginla playing with the Bruins.

It means we have to face a guy who has had great success against us far more often and as part of a better team but it also means that Boston will be losing some players from their current line-up.

Going into next year they have under 8 million in cap space to re-sign Iginla, Horton, Rask, a back-up goalie and a depth player to fill out the roster. They also need to leave enough space for the year after when they need to re-sign Bergeron.

Not really far more often. We've been playing him 4 times a year, it would be 5 or 6 if he re-signs.

If he re-signs, it would probably be in place of Horton, so there's a good chance one of them would be available as a UFA. Though they may end up doing something with Savard to create some space.

True but with the playoffs being focused more on inter division match-ups I figure its inevitable that the Bruins and Wings will be seeing more of each other than the Wings and Flames were under the current format.

The rumour i've been hearing on rogers sportsnet is Alexander Khokhlachev, Matt Bartkowski and a 1st round pick for Iggy. If this is true, this is a steal for the Bruins. I've seen Khoklachev play a fair bit in the last year and he's another streaky russian player that could become a good player or could be a total bust. Bartkowski is a 3rd pairing dmen and the first rounder will be a late rounder that could also go either way. Calgary should have traded Iggy when he was still a top player and would have got them someone like Dougie Hamilton, plus picks. Unbelievable how long the Flames have been in denial that they suck and need to rebuild. Kipper also is worth a lot less then he was a year or two ago.

That seems to be The Story now. Big steal, for sure. Which kinda pisses me off, but he doesn't want to come here anyway, so screw him and screw this whole thing. :sleepy:
