Iginla for Malkin
 
If Calgary were to decide to rebuild (for whatever reason) while Pittsburgh were wanting to push for the cup, what would you think about a deal centered around Malkin for Iginla?

- Iginla and Crosby would be an effective combo

I know that Calgary will never trade their captain, but what would the deal look like?

Paul4587 08-21-2008 09:10 PM

I doubt either team does that.

DBU 08-21-2008 09:11 PM

No chance in hell.

We can't and couldn't afford Malkin's salary. Calgary is 1.4 mill over the cap, and Malkin makes something like.... 8.7 mill starting this season.

Rickety Cricket 08-21-2008 09:12 PM

I'd be happy to get Iginla out of the West, that guy makes the Sharks his *****

H382 08-21-2008 09:13 PM

Because Malkin isn't good enough to help push for a Cup run?

You know, I can't believe you were the first to point that out.

That is like saying, "I know the world will never be flat, but what would it look like if it was?"

It would look flat :p

pittsburgh wouldn't do this based on the age of the players. i know iginla isn't that old, its just that malkin is that young.

Northern Neighbour 08-21-2008 09:55 PM

If Pittsburgh was going to make a Cup run, I think they would look at improving their defense and goaltending (dealing Fleury for a veteran #1) first before dealing Malkin.

hototogisu 08-21-2008 10:02 PM

^ They were a couple of games away from the Stanley Cup with Fleury...

Fleury was definitely the least of their problems in that series. He played great and only has potential to get better.

Definitely want to trade the 23 year old goaltender with a 40 win season and a trip to the Cup Finals right after signing the 7 year contract. Why wouldn't you?

Starting next season. Crosby's 8.7 kicks in this year, Malkin's still at 3.85 million.


I also wouldn't do Iginla for Malkin. I'd really prefer to have Malkin over the next 6 years in his mid-20s, than Iginla's 30s for the remainder of his contract. I don't think Calgary really wants to either. If we're just talking value, yes, they're pretty close, depending on how you rate future potential.

:banghead:

Think twice, post once. Please.

No motivation whatsoever for either team.

Marns 08-21-2008 10:24 PM

Can Malkin's name please be put into the swear filter for this board?

Hyperkookeez* 08-21-2008 10:27 PM

LOL

flames would fall apart in a second, no offense to malkin

Soundwave 08-21-2008 10:32 PM

Even though it does make some sense, it would be GM suicide in a Canadian hockey town like Calgary.

Imagine the backlash in Calgary if (when?) Iginla lifts the Cup in a Penguins uniform?

The NHL marketing brass would love to have Iginla in an American city though I think.

Well said back there :nod:
And you have to also remember Gonchar-Malkin thing. Sergei Go-Go has been helping Malkin alot and they are probably very close friends.

Orym 08-21-2008 10:49 PM

This isn't even entertaining to talk about. This makes no sense whatsoever for either franchise.

Well he said if the Flames had to rebuild......

Still, though...It's not too often when a team rebuilding gets the better player in the deal. If Iginla were to be traded to Pitt this season (maybe at the deadline) my guess is that it would be for Staal and maybe Sydor to make the salaries work.....still though, doesn't make too much sense, It's not like Iginla is 37 years old and ready to retire....The flames could go through a full rebuild with him still there....

Luongo2008* 08-21-2008 11:14 PM

not right now for calgary cuz their already over cap

Orym 08-21-2008 11:20 PM

The thing I don't understand is why everyone keeps throwing Malkin into all these wacky deals. Pittsburgh extended him FOREVER and paid him "Crosby money" because they intend to KEEP him and build around him. This would make a hell of a lot more sense if you replace Malkin with the likes of Staal, and then some other hot garbage just to salary dump or whatever.

IslesFTW 08-21-2008 11:27 PM

Why would Pittsburgh trade for an older player when I honestly don't see much difference in either person's offensive productivity potential

How can the Flames afford Malkin?

If the Flames could take on Malkin, this would be a win for them in my opinion
