This is for all the teams. What do you think Inginla, a UFA to be, is worth ?
From a Montréal perspective I would say Eller (a big center, 13th overall), a 1st, and two 2nd (one of those being Calgary's from the Cammy trade, which will probably be in the 30s). Maybe I'm jumping off the gun, but I really think Calgary needs to rebuild, draft guys like Barkov.
I think it really depends on the direction management is going for the Flames. If we are sinking fast, and hovering out of the playoffs I can see Iginla being shopped around. Do I want to trade him, no. Should we trade him, maybe.
I'd say that the deal proposed is of pretty good value, and as a Flames fan I'd definitely consider it. The whole point of trading Iginla is to build for the future, and this would certainly help greatly.
