I don't see what the whole age thing has to do with anything.  He's old...despite his age...Hello? Anyone notice that he is only 35? Hell, Dats is 34 and still playing like he is 30 and so would Iginla if he had a supporting cast. As long as the prospects don't include our prized ones and our 1st round pick, I am in.

 

(sorry Nyquist, I do not hold you as one of our prized prospects.  No offense, just business)

Jokes and sacrasm and all-around pessimism aside...it'd bef****** great having Iginla on this team, if only for one round. I mean run.
 
Big (by our standards), strong, fire-in-the-belly, hungry-for-his-first-and-probably-only-Cup kind of guy. He'd bring an element or two or three that we're sorely lacking.
 
Power play problems? Zetterberg - Datsyuk - Iginla. Sick.



I agree. He is a finisher that we need. Someone to toss a couple pucks at the net.

I still think price is too much for a rental. BUT if the wings go all in. And make a run at cup we need 2 maybe three guys. And yes iginla would be one of the guys we need.

But I still feel its too much.

I think Boston is most likely to get him.

 

Chicago has a young and successful team. Can't see them mortgaging their future.  Calgary would be dumb to trade Iginla in the division, so I don't see Vancouver getting him.

 

Pens?  Maybe but I doubt it.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I don't think the Wings are Jerome Iginla away from they cup. He's up there too...I'm not sure how many good seasons he has left. If we are going to throw good prospects at a player, it truly needs to be a very good defenceman. If we do get a forward I really hope he's younger

Nobody wants to give up good, young forwards.  

 

Look how much money Anaheim was willing to shell out for Getzlaf and Perry.

Well, It's just my opinion as those players are kind of unique in our system, we don't have much goaltending depth, we are kinda weak with big centers, and Sproul is about as elite of defensive prospect as you can have, it would take a hell of a player to get him. 
 
Not quite sure why that's "cute".



I agree with what you're saying. But you never know what trades may or may not happen. Now do I think its unlikely they're moved? Yes highly unlikely. But with the wings you're only untouchable if you're north of 30 and on the decline( no that's not sarcasm...prove me wrong).


And you don't know what the wings management thinks. Maybe they see Howard as their goalie for the next 10 years. I mean he is average or maybe below average to many here. Mzrazek very well could be a trade piece. If sprouk lands us a superstar defenseman that's say 25 why not trade him? Like I said stuff happens. Its why I don't like the word untouchable as no one is untouchable.

I think with the Pens getting Morrow. Boston "probably" now has the best chance at getting Iginla.

Yeah, the untouchable comment was just meant with this trade for Iginla, if the Wings were to go after a younger player like Yandle for example all bets are off.

By young, I mean not over 35....if Iginla was 31-32 I'd be all about it. I just think its all downslope from here with him.

Because in Dipland, degraa means Swami of Hockey...I am surprised you didn't know that...

 

Funny, everyone wants, but no one wants to give up.  Sooner or later, with our prospects, you are going to have another Meech/Quincey situation and are going to lose one of them for nothing.  If you can sacrifice one or two now for Iginla (I don't like rentals, he needs to sign a 3 year deal) then you need to grow some (Stu) balls and take that risk...

 

I said I don't like rentals, if he indeed puts the Wings in a whole new gear and they make it pretty far into the playoffs, he will re-sign here.  The only way he walks is if they get embarrassed in the 1st round...

It's a situation where Datsyuk is getting close to the end, and I think we need to make an effort to put talent around him. We have assets, and with the rise of Lashoff, and Kindl, our defense situation is looking much brighter the nthe beginning of the year.

 

I wouldn't be against going after Iginla, he's still a good player, he's just no longer a PPG top 10 player. But he would still provide us with a consistent scoring winger, and would be an immediate upgrade to our team.

But you want Datsyuk to re-sign after next year, right? Just making sure I understand...BTW, he won't be "over" 35 until July...

Yandle is Smith without the toughness but with almost as much rookie mistakes. 

Iginla is more of the player we need a right handed sniper who drives to the net creates space and can still back up his teammates. It's been a while since we've had some toughness in the top 6 or on the PP.

Oh yea agreed, I just couldn't think of another young player that's been in trade rumors.

It isn't about Iginla's age, it's about Iginla's market value right now in combination with his age.  He's going to be so expensive to bring in... I have no doubt that he would produce on any team, and give them a great push in the playoff picture, but he's a 35-year old rental player.  If you're going to fork over what Calgary is demanding for him, you'd better have a great chance at winning the Stanley Cup this year.  He will hit free agency after this season.

 

If I was a GM, I would wait until we're in the final days of the trade deadline.  If he's still available, I would expect that Calgary's asking price would start to bend because they want to get something for him instead of seeing him walk.

He is still a consistent 30 goal scorer on a non playoff team. A change of scenery and playing with Pav and Z could rejuvenate him back to being a PPG player

Not everyone ages the same.

We have been fortunate with several guys. Usually after 30-32 people start declining. But some guys like lids and dats do it very slowly so they can still compete at a high level. But make no mistake are decking as player. Lids his last couple of years slowed down a lot. But he was just such a smart player he was still able to be in the right position and conserved his enery.

Or he could suck.

Lidstrom did not throw his body around every night. Neither does Datsyuk. Iginla does.
