These aren't really rumor threads, it's usually 90-95% pure speculation...

I think if Eric Staal requested a trade I would think Minnesota wild would be the team frist in line. First i think the wild dont have that "star player" now that grabrick is in New york. Eric would also help attendense since his home is only hours away ( yes i belive Thunder Bay hockey fans would travel to see him ) It may even get some more coverage in my home town. (the local radio station would proberly pick up the wild games again) Not sure who would have to go the other way ( proberly martin havlat or Mikko Koivu )

As for him for Kopi+ as much as id love to go to the store and get a staal name put on a Kings jersy hes far to expensive for to long.

I'd say Columbus should be first, they've been trying for years to get Nash a center. A Nash/Staal/Filatov line would be something special.

I agree that would be a hell of a line but if ur going with the needs a center for there star i would say Calgary has been waiting a heck of a lot longer to get one for iggy .

I can't believe the Iginla to LA rumour hasn't reached your board yet.

Anyway: Iginla Offered to Kings

Quote:
Iginla Offered?
I had not seen Eklunds column as I had been on the road this afternoon, but when I arrived at Staples I was told by a member of the press that two sources, one from Canada, claimed that Calgary had offered Jarome Iginla to the Kings in exchange for Brayden Schenn, Andrei Loktionov, Thomas Hickey and the Kings 1st round pick. He also went on to say that this will probably be confirmed by a legitimate Canadian newspaper. Calgary fans will think I'm crazy, or maybe its the food poisoning I got tonight from a bad Steak Sandwich, but I wouldn't do that deal.
But take it for what it is worth. Kings probably would be first in line if Iginla was being shopped.

You do realize it is a GOOD 6 hour drive from Thunder Bay right? You do know that Mikko Koivu is a similar player that they are already paying huge Eric Staal type money right? And you do know that there are no serious attendance issues in Minny right?

Yes the source is iffy but I'm surprised there are no discussions at all. You people beg for some real rumours and you get one, albeit a sketchy one, but you wont discuss it?

If Iginla is going anywhere I put my money on LA.

Where was Barry at fault on this?

He reported what he had heard and gave an opinion, I think that some of us hold the media sources who report rumors to some weird level of accountability when all they are doing is reporting what they are told. I mean, I don't see Barry or most of them as far as that goes saying that they are the GM of a team and that when they say that they have heard something or that they believe that something is going to happen that it is written in stone or that they have the ability to actually make it happen.

Eklund in my opinion is slightly more accountable because of his rating system but in the end all he is doing is passing along rumors.

I mean, they are rumors right? Nobody is calling them done deals, are they?

Barry hears things and while your opinion is just as right or wrong as any others mine is that he has contact with people in and around the Kings (and the NHL because nothing happens in a vacuum) and when he hears something he reports it.

There are allot of people who post here who are connected to people players mgmt in the NHL and its affiliate league's and allot of what Barry reports are things that they (we) hear too.

I am not saying that Barry or anyone else is a swami or anything and hey if it gets you happy to bag on them then that is part of the entertainment too I suppose but in the end, they are just messengers. So what difference does it make. I respect allot of them in the same way I do allot of the people who post here, sometimes brilliant and sometimes a little off.

Isn't that the way that it is supposed to be? I mean I know to each their own but I would rather hear the rumors than not.

Um perhaps you didn't realize I live in Thunder Bay and yes its been a while since i've personally been there but alot of people from this town used to go to the states to go shopping. There used to be alot of people that would go down just for the weekend. ( and still do ) I belive that a 6 hour drive isnt that far. I have friends that have driven to minni just to have a coffee lol silly yes i know but its been done a fair amount of time. The local bus company has charters i think to go see them. This town has alot of shift workers which has different days off. So a mid week trip to see a game is possible. I also belive theres a plane ride which is only like 45 mins. once a day from here.

Yes i do know mikko is making that type of money and as i stated i wasnt sure who would go the other way i do see him as a possibe going the other way. As far as ur attendance issues I was only saying that eric is a bigger draw and would help boast attendance. this is just my opinion but i think minnesota would be interested

Barry's source is the team doctor I thought we established this already.

I know people guessed at it being that ... but I doubt it.

Matt was making out like Schenn's knee was so bad in pre-season that we'd never see him with the Kings, and yet there he was on game 1. And then recently Matt claimed Scott Parse's injury was much worse than we all thought at first, and then within a week of him posting that Scott's back in the line-up.

Not ragging on Matt ... this time ... just saying doesn't seem like his inside source is the team doctor is all.

So I hear. I didn't see a specific thread of anything in the rumour thread so I assumed no one was talking about it.

There were about 30 comments discussing it already. No way the Kings nibble at that.
