No one should be surprised if Iginla re-signs in Calgary. I expect him to finish his retire as a Flame, then take a job in the front office or even behind the bench in some capacity.

It's very understandable that the Flames would want to make Iginla a career Flame. It's the classy thing to do for sure. It may not be the best thing for the team asset wise, but it is in terms of reputation. I give the Flames crap all the time, cause I'm an Oilers fan, and that's just how things are. But re-signing Iginla would be a move that I would respect.

And they can still move guys like Bouwmeester and Kipper for a return to help their eventual rebuild/retool. Guys who aren't career Flames.

If Iginla wanted to leave and go to a contender, I wouldn't hold it against him one bit. But I'm stoked to hear he wants to stay and that the feeling is mutual with the Flames (and the majority of Flames fans).

If the trade boards is any indication of the market for Iginla it makes sense that Calgary doesn't want to trade him most want to give up a late first and a decent prospect while neither are useless both are several years away from helping and don't do much to address our needs going forward unless we can get a top 15 pick or a real good prospect trading him doesn't offer a lot of help.

How would re-signing JAROME IGINLA be a sign that Feaster has no idea what he's doing?

Because he's not trading him for junk? Would that be a sign of positive things to come for the Flames?

Don't waste your time people love to rag on the flames for not rebuilding the way Edmonton has then they complain about them getting so many first overall picks its like they think overnight teams become good.

Why? I can see Jarome waiving his NMC to play with Doan, that has Playfair as an assistant coach, and the Coyotes could offer a package of Gormley, Samuelson, and a 1st. Iginla would also make the Coyotes a legitimate contender and a better team than the one that played against the Kings last playoffs.

I think he will re-sign and play out his career in Calgary but neither side can really say anything different right now anyway. It would just be bad PR for him to be hinting at wanting to leave or the Flames to be hinting that they'll shop their long time franchise player. That's not exactly a way to get fans in Calgary excited coming out of the lockout.

If Iginla wants to retire a Flame - Great. All the power to him and the organization. I think it's fantastic. He's earned the right to stay in Calgary.
Would love him on the Bruins - but the only way it would ever happen is if Iginla decided he wanted a last couple runs at the Cup and didn't think Calgary could get him there and then you set something up that both teams could live with. I never thought Iginla would be the 1st piece they would move.

If Calgary is out of it this year - and I for one expect them to make the playoffs - and wants to rebuild then they have all kinds of players that would get great returns including Kipper, J.Bo, Tanguay, Cammy... If they traded these players and decided to rebuild then Iginla might ask to be moved but who knows if they would move these players while Iginla is still there.

I think the constant desire of fans of other teams (myself sometimes included) that want the Flames to tear it apart is tiring. They are a good competitive team and if this core can't accomplish more then eventually changes will be made and they might have to rebuild but... not today.

They are one of the least talented teams in the west. Columbus is probably the only team worse than them in terms of skill.

That's your opinion, I certainly don't see a lack of skill on this roster. If anything this team lacks toughness, not talent.

As poorly and inflammatory as you said this I believe it's the truth. Iggy would love to win a cup, but doesn't want his legacy tarnished with disloyalty. Feaster should want to trade him (not as sure he does), but can't because of the perceived backlash it would cause. Both parties need to grow a pair and make the right hockey decision.

Agreed. I actually think this roster has too many Tanguay/Cammy/Hudler types. I think we need more Glencross type players. I actually see 7 guys who slot in as top 6 forwards skill wise. Glencross is the only guy who brings a well rounded game in that grouping though.

Yes.

Games played has always been the measuring stick of a career. And the preseason does not count as games played. Iginla IS a Dallas Stars draft pick. Iginla IS NOT Dallas Stars Alumni.

The Flames "rebuild" is going just fine. The Flames do not need to trade Iggy for a late first for the sake of tanking.

If they were gonna trade him they should have a few years ago, that ship has sailed and now the Flames can continue being the same 7th-11th place team they have been for a while, not sure what's going on there, doesn't seem to be a real plan in place

IMO if Iggy cared so much about Calgary he'd resign for 2 years with a modified NTC where he'd choose 8-10 teams to play for.

No, the Flames prospect pool isn't quite as bad as people think it is, but the Flames aren't going to continue to be a competitor if they don't retool at some point in time.

Most of the Flames prospects with considerable upside are a few years away from being impact players and by the time that happens Iggy will probably be 3rd line player and Kipper will be retired. They'll have more holes in their system.

I think this year is the first year in a long time that the Edmonton/Calgary series should be fun to watch. Edmonton is clearly now the most complete team they've had since their first year out of the lockout.

I'll give Calgary credit for picking up Hudler and Wideman to stop the bleeding, but they still aren't going to score enough goals this year.

When everyone left Edmonton, Calgary also clearly started to fade and the Flames have done everything within their power to remain in the hunt for a playoff spot. Since they first started to flounder I've hoped that they'd follow Edmonton into a rebuild so that we could actually meet each other in the playoffs. That would be some awesome TV.

So, enjoy the battle of Alberta this year. I think it'll be a good one, but we'll be leaving you guys in the dust if you feel that it's important to old onto Iggy and Kipper till the day that they're no longer serviceable NHlers. There's really nothing wrong with trading them away. Even Ray Bourque left the Bruins to win a cup with the Avs.

Jarome wants to play until he is at least 40. He even said so himself. In about 2017 is when the "should Jarome leave the Flames to pursue a cup" conversation should start. If the Flames trade Jarome for a 1st, a player and a prospect they will look like fools five years from now.

Look at when the Oilers traded Ryan Smyth. The whole package they got has busted out, the trade seemed to wreck the franchise and he is still an effective NHLer today.

Blah, blah blah. The Oilers franchise is an embarrassment to the league. You guys are the reason the CBA changed the draft lottery rules. Icing an ECHL squad for 5 years so you can stockpile top picks is just sad. I think the culture of losing in Edmonton is so ingrained now it won't matter who you draft, they'll end up learning to lose because it's a core value of your sad franchise.

Call me selfish, but good. As a fan, I want to see Iginla retire in Calgary.

I thought this whole press conference was them finally trading him.
