If iginla sucks then by would he be 3rd on our team in points or game with .70.

It's not like he has struggled mightily, and its a half season, if there was ever a season to go after a older rental this would be the season.

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

 

And that is why we want no part of him!!! (!!!!!)
 



Or he could suck.

 

O Lord. Aren't you Franzen's lawyer or whatever?

Except that, because of the shortened season, less teams are accepting their place as sellers which drives the price up.  Iginla would be a great pickup, but for the cost.

He is still outproducing any of the Wings' wingers without a center as good as Fippula, never mind Datsyuk or Zetterberg and is tougher than all of them (Wings' wingers) too.

I don't want an expensive rental.  I'll take a cheaper rental, but not one that's likely not going to say with your team and who will cost a boat load.  If we're in the market for an expensive star winger I'd chase Gaborik before Iginla.  At least he's under contract for another year.

 

Also, Iginla seriously loves Calgary, as does his family by all accounts.  Wouldn't surprise me a bit if he was traded, Calgary got a king's ransom for him, and he returned there in the off season. 

 

No thanks.

An unproven prospect and a pick (a la Brenden Morrow), then yes.

Agreed.

 

What's the point of giving up a ton for the guy if all he'll do is re-sign with Calgary later this summer?

Oh that would be totally uncool.

Quincey, McCollum, Mursak for Iginla. Throw in a pick even. Ignila would be at least our 4th best forward. If Kenny gets er done, we should be looking at the Cup. He's not just a rental, no reason we couldn't re-sign him immediately. Iginla-Datsyuk would rip it up.

Best case scenario:  We last an extra round with an Iginla signing.  Problem is: We give up assets this team needs in order to stay the mighty red wings.  

 

Though I have to say right about now I would trade Franzen for Iginla straight up.

Are you kidding? Block you? And miss watching you stumble around the forum looking for an argument like a dog sniffing butts? It would be like turning off a bad episode of Jerry Springer. You know you shouldn't be watching, but you just... can't... help... it...

If this were last season or the season before when the Wings had a legit shot at the Cup I would say go for it. The Wings are more than an aging Iginla away from being a contender. The Wings are at the start of a transition. Lets not set that transition back another 2 years by trading prospects. I would however trade Iginla for Franzine if thats all it took.

That's the way I read it too.

 

I think maybe it was more like, listen Jerome, we talked to those 4 teams you chose...ya, no, they don't want you...you are going to have to find another team to go to.  Detroit? Ok, we will see if they want you...

Like I said yesterday, seeing at what the Pens were willing to pay for Morrow I don't even want to think about the pricetag for Iginla. This has to be a big nono from Holland.

 

Wings are not an Iginla away from contending for the cup.

The way Kindl has played this year has pretty much taken him off my trade bait list. Quincey is on it though. 

 

So, in my wacky mind: 

 

Flip + Q + McCollum + 2 high round picks (4/5th round) for Iginla.

Sorry, but maybe a few years ago, I might have considered it (for about 30 seconds before I dismissed it), but now, no.  Not for any reason.

They've came out and said it's 2 prospects + a pick.

Could be that the Flames are trying to drive up potential offers from the Bruins or LA or something by saying other teams are in the race. Who knows?
