The problem is we don't have much we can part with, or enough for Calgary to be overwhelmingly interested. Kings will start with Toffoli and Pearson off the table, but might be forced to lose one if they want to make the deal. No 2013 1st round pick available, which makes the 2014 pick that much more valuable to LA. Kings probably open trade talks by offering Vey/Bernier and a 2014 2nd pick, and I'm guessing that's not enough for Calgary to bite.

Any thoughts on Iggy to LA? I'd love to hear 'em.
Toffoli and Pearson won't be off the table. If Flames move Iginla they will be targetting a '13 1st round pick as part of the return I'd imagine.

If Kings come looking for Iginla it will be because Sutter told Lombardi he wants/needs him, Lombardi won't be making non-roster players untouchable if that's the case.
