But your point is well taken though and any deal will be around April 1st so ther is 7 weeks and about 20-25 games to show us who he is, and what needs the Bruins have

A lot can happen in 25 games and Boston may need nothing, other areas, and if that area how do they view him, view others and cost

Im pretty confident Chiarelli and company will not get hosed, not panic, and be extremely patient and protective of the handful of guys they project is future NHL players

All we know for sure is that after trading for Kaberle, the Bruins won the Stanley Cup.

Didn't he have the most assists among defenseman for that run, by the way? I seem to remember something like that.
Yep. He helped the transition game IMO. Not as much as we hoped, of course, but I still don't think he was that bad. Of course I'm glad we didn't keep him, but when some suggest the Cup was won with or without or him, or even despite him, that's ridiculous.

What future? Chara, ference and thornton are the only older guys on the team. The rest are in their 20s and locked up for the most part. There isn't really a spot for spooner or khoklachev unless chiarelli makes one as neither of them fit on the 3rd line

I would still like him here but I can't act like I watch tons of Flames games. If scouts and people who watch him regularly say he's just good, then I fall on the side of not going nuts for him.

I do think that getting traded to a real contender would give him a good boost, but the idea of some of the prices being discussed around here are scary. It's not like Caron + 1st is enough to get him.

Bruins aren't really a team predicated on speed so Iginla would fit right in lol, especially if you are sticking him with lucic and Krejci

Is Daymond Langkow retired? He'd be a decent 3rd liner.

Don't know if he filed the paperwork to make it official, but he retired due to injury.

He has been in sharp decline since 2007. After the lockout, I'm not sure he could still score over 20 points in a full season. Declining Points since 2007 - 77, 65, 49, 37, 1 (injury), 30.

Probably better than Bourque and maybe worth a minimum contract if injuries continue but we can do much better.

Andrew Brunette
Brendan Morrison
Dominic Moore
Trent Hunter

Some guys out there if your looking to pick up someone off the scrap heap to play on the 3rd/4th line. Though it seems more likely they go out and bring in a legit 2nd/3rd liner via trade with all the cap space now.

I'd be very happy with Moore if he's close to being in game shape but I believe he lost his wife this year so he may not be interested in hockey at least for now.

BOS is likely to sign vet Jay Pandolfo to a contract this week. He has been skating/traveling with Bruins without a contract.

After a stint in Providence, fourth line LW with Paille moving up to Bourque's spot?

Should Campbell/Paille/Peverly/Bourque be concerned?

of course not. he's obviously just an extra body with some experience that they can use when guys inevitably get hurt/need a day off.

Might be a long shot but Khudobin is playing well and if he keeps it up I wonder if he could be a trade asset. He will be a free agent and if you package him with someone it might get you something useful in return. I know he's the backup I don't see why you couldn't promote someone from AHL.

No one is trading their best prospects for Iginla... and NO ONE is even going to come close to offering a player like Tyler Seguin.

Feaster can either attempt to justify his return for Iginla at the trade deadline (less than everyone will think) OR he can spend an off-season attempting to explain why he didn't get SOMETHING for his aging star after he signs elsewhere with nothing to show.
I'm not saying I would be in favor of such a deal and I'm not arguing against any of the above (I actually agree with everything you said sans the 'no one will trade their best prospects for Iginla') just thinking it out logically. I'm actually on board with you man, I don't want Iginla because of what I think he will cost. If he could be had for Caron and a 2nd, then the deal should've been done yesterday.

A much lesser deal is not only the more likely transaction, but it would also be better for the future continuity of being able to skate a winning team.

Goalie trades very rarely happen in the offseason nevermind at the deadline. Khudobin is worth more as the Bruins back-up than what they are likely to net in return.

This is from Pierre LeBrun on twitter:

For Boston fans who keep asking me, I do not believe the B's have any interest in Jarome Iginla. I don't think they'll go there.
