How is Pittsburgh "classless"?

I also wouldn't mind Iggy moving to Philly either.

If Iggy is moving somewhere, i'd like to see him in Philly. Briere-Giroux-Iginla would be deadly.

100% agree. I think it's a great fit, and Iggy would put up great numbers again (and get that 4th olympic). Plus they have some assests we could use.

I know many of us long time fans are grateful for what Iggy has done for this team, and for those who saw the same with Ray Bourque when he was traded and won with Colorado. I think we owe it to him to trade him to a real contender (and please don't mention the BJ's again).

I agree! I'd send him to Philly or Boston in a hearbeat but I think I would vomit if he puts on a Pens sweater.

Last year? Definitely. This year? No. The Flyers have lost something in their team, and I don't see them as Cup contenders as of the moment.

The only 2 teams that make sense are the Bruins and the Pens. The only team that NEEDS a right winger is Pittsburgh. Plus that team could use a leader like Iginla to straighten out their... attitude.

Well there is 1983 and 1984 season. Where they intentionally lost down the stretch to land Lemieux. Then there is the 2002-03 season where they traded away a significant part of their roster for pretty much no return in hopes of finishing last to draft Ovechkin, but happened to lose the lottery.

The Penguins winning rewards that kind of behavior and that is not good for hockey. I love iginla and I would hate to see him involved with a franchise that is willing to lose on purpose.

And here you thought I was going to go on about Matt Cooke or they way they dive like Canucks or something, right?

I could give two ***** about the pens winning the cup. I want Iggy to win, and that's where I see his best opportunity being. Not Boston and definitely not Philly.

Hmm.. reminds me a lot of the Edmonton Oilers , that or they just suck so much that they didn't even "intentionally" try to lose. I don't agree with how the pens built their team but Im a Crosby supporter and if I he can get Iggy a cup, as well as the flames getting a nice return in the trade, i'd be open to trading him there.

And I think him winning with Pittsburgh would be tainted. I would rather see him win anywhere else. I would trade Iginla to Vancouver before Pittsburgh because while I think they are pretty classless for their diving and biting even they won't stoop as low as losing on purpose.

The first year Edmonton finished last, it wasn't on purpose. They did have a whole whack of injuries, after that I never saw much of an effort to get better in the offseason, so its kind of borderline. But once the season started they never once traded large chunks of their roster for garbage.

I would love to see Iggy play with G in Philly. Iggy is exactly what that team needs right now to turn it around and Giroux's playmaking ability is almost on par with Sid's. They would be totally deadly. However, the Flyer's D is not championship caliber and them landing Iggy is not going to change that. Also, the Flyers do not have the assets that we would want in return, we will not be getting Couts or Schenn.

The Pens make the most sense for so many reasons. I also think the B's and Kings will be calling, the Kings may ask us to take Penner as a dump though, if not he would be waived.

Edmonton over Vancouver, for sure. I could even handle the "lol 8 cups, your captain won his cup with our team" trash talk from the Oilers fans.

No way. The Oilers winning a cup in the near future will do nothing but perpetuate the lose to win attitude so many fans have. It's much better to see the Canucks win then the Oilers because at least they didn't **** the bed in 3 consecutive years because they thought it would make them better.
