One of the worst trade proposals ever.

Trading our franchise winger for a rental player.

Call me when you sign Semin to a 3 million dollar per year 2 year deal and we'll talk

Ugh

If your name is McFly . . . Think

Okay. Semin and who else would make this work? How about Alzner. Unfortunately he doesn't score much ergo the cheap 2 year contract.

Believe me, Iggy is not leaving Calgary.

He wants to stay in Calgary, and Calgary wants him to retire here.

He values staying in this organization more than winning a cup.. Said it wont be the same if he did not win it with the flames.

Hell even Ovie for Iggy straight up would get rejected. Thats how much Calgary loves Iginla.

Really? He may regret that when he's old and retired. Washington could love Iggy too. Until the end of the 12/13 season and then he could come back to Calgary and still retire there.

As a Caps fan.. there is no way Flames do that.

I wouldn't want to trade for a captain, anyway -- I imagine it would take a significant overpayment, even if the other team would secretly not mind moving the guy, which is not the case here.

no shot GMGM would give up Alzner, We have been buiulding our young d-man up for far too long. This would be stupid.

And scoring doesn't matter for contract length...He's a good stay-at-home Dman....Expect a bigger contract in the future.

To land Iginla would require a huge overpayment, especially since the Flames are in the playoff hunt. The Flames would probably ask for Semin (as a salary dump), at least one if not both of the first-round picks Washington owns (their own and Colorado's), and Eakin.

This is a high price, but only such a deal would likely get Feaster to listen. Even then, I doubt he trades the team's franchise player in the midst of a playoff race.

This proposal gets posted once a month and looks just as stupid every time.

Your name is definitely fitting because that is a dream. Semin is one of the softest players in the league. Iginla gets a chance to win a cup? With what team, the team he is on now has a better chance of winning the cup then the Caps do. That is just sad.

No playoff aspirations? The Flames are 2 points out going into tonight.

There is nothing the Flames would take back from the Caps for Iginla. This team is looking like a legit playoff calibre team right now and that is without Iginla scoring big. He'll get on one of his big runs he always gets on and he'll show again just how good he is.

Washington is full of soft Hollywood types that are there for the show and don't want to put in any effort. I'll be glad when the miss the playoffs, at least then a team can get in that actually has a shot at doing something because the Caps would be out in the first round.

If Calgary trades Iginla, it signals a complete blowup of the Flames and a change in their philosophy

So Semin would be of no interest, the price tag would revolve around top prospects and first round drraft picks.

This deal makes absolutely no sense for Calgary or Iginla. Iginla likely has a better shot at the playoffs staying right where he is. Why would he want to go to Washington?

And why would the Flames trade a proven leader for an enigmatic, soon-to-be UFA, when they're on the cusp of a playoff position?

Even if the Flames were completely out of the playoff picture there's no way they would do this deal. Washington would have to add picks or prospects - Semin, because he's a pending UFA, has pretty much 0 trade value right now.
