I like the thread idea.

Iginla + Nemisz + Sarich for 1st + Bennett + Dumoulin

Jbo for Zibanejad + 2014 2nd

Giordano + Stajan for Schwartz + Cole

Kipper to Tampa/SJ/Florida/Chicago for a 2nd

Stempniak for Watson (we most likely have to add)

Cammy at half price for 1st + Irwin

Next season

Tanguay - Backlund - Bennet
Sven - Hudler - Cervenka
Shwartz - Zib - Glencross

This is why everyone thinks we're crazy. This isn't wishful thinking, it's stupid. No one who isn't Calgary does this.

I agree: Mika Zibanejad for Jbo is already a so-so trade for the Sens, throw in the first and it's not quite there.

Yeah, a second is maybe there. Depends on how desperate Sens are for a D-man. I don't know if they'd part ways with probably their best prospect, or at least top 3.

Saying that, I think Jbo has shown that this year he could fetch a great return when he's playing in the right system.

With Spezza and Turris the center position is locked up for years in Ottawa so Zib isn't as big of a loss they also have Silverberg who can be a top 6 winger and who ever else they draft.

He'd look good in a Flames uniform; that being said, I always picture him as a small guy, he's most definitely not lol.

Trades (this season):

Kiprusoff (to Tor) for Percy, 2013 1st
Cammalleri (to Buff) for Stafford
Sarich, Giordano (to NYR) for JT Miller, 2013 3rd
Comeau (to Pitts) 2013 4th
Iginla, Stajan, Butler (to Bos) for Krecji, Caron, Krug, 2013 1st

Draft:

Stempniak (to CBJ) for Nikitin
I am going to predict we draft #3,#20 and #30. Draft Sasha Barkov, Anthony Mantha and Jacob De la Rose.

Free agency:

Sign Ryan O'Byrne. Re-sign MacDonald, Cerevenka, sign Raamo

Lineup:

Hudler-Krecji-Cervenka
Glencross-Tanguay-Stafford
Baertschi-Backlund-Miller
Bouma-Horak-Caron
Jones-Jackman

Nikitin-Bouwmeester
Brodie-Wideman
Krug-O'Byrne
Smith

Raamo, MacDonald

Not a total rebuild but try to be competitive and if still suck then move more guys at 2014 deadline.

Would love Zibby here, was one of my favorite players in the draft. Having said that, I would be shocked if they moved him for Bouw.

Given that Karlsson is down but could be back for the playoffs, it wouldn't be huge surprise if they did make a move for Jbo especially when it won't cost them a roster player.

Trading everyone would be a mistake. If picks wind up being busts/not working out, we lose everything and gain nothing. We can't put everything into one draft.

Trade Iginla, Giordano, Kipper, Stempniak, Stajan, Sarich for picks/prospects

Next season, go with (assuming no prospects we gain in trades get slotted in)

Glencross - Tanguay - Cammalleri
Hudler - Backlund - Baertschi
Cervenka - Horak - UFA
Bouma - Aliu - Jackman

PP Line 1:
Hudler - Tanguay - Baertschi
Cammalleri - Wideman

PK Line 1:
Glencross - Aliu - Bouma
Bouwmeester - UFA/Brodie

Bouwmeester - Wideman
Brodie - UFA
Smith - Butler

#1A - Ramo
#2A - Irving

If we're out of the running again next season, then deal Bouw (assuming Brodie and a few others continue to develop) and Cammalleri.

I don't have a specific trade in mind but I think the Flames are too loyal to their players. Which then messes with their asset management.

They 'say' they will not trade Iginla. But they should be saying... "If the right offer comes up anybody can be traded."

Look at some of the other teams out there that makes trades to better their teams. Pittsburgh, Philly, Boston, LA etc.

They can't really say that about a player with a NMC though...

Yes, NMC can be worked with but if the player doesn't want to be traded then the Flames can't do anything.

I always have been and always will be against trading away top players with the intent of losing to gain a higher pick.

That said I have no problem moving players under the following circumstances.

1) The player is about to become a free agent and it is better to get something than nothing.

2) The player has a contract that is not desirable.

3) The player has expressed a desire to play elsewhere

4) If its a hockey trade, this would be a trade that could have a positive impact either this season or next.


What people seem to forget is while we could move Iginla, Tanguay, Bouwmeester, Giordao, Cammalleri, Glencross..... etc and load up on 1st and 2nd round draft picks, they would still be at best mid-round picks, which significantly reduces the chance of the pick panning out. Trades for futures often don't work out well.

I think the idea is grabbing a lot of top prospects along with the picks.
Also, getting some from future years is always a great idea. Look at Columbus, they got two firsts this year, LA's not playing well and NY isn't top tier.

Rebuilding now is pretty much the best time possible to do it. Unlike Edmonton, we won't have to tank for 5 years because we have tons of assets that can fetch huge returns

Columbus acquired those picks last year and in the off season, it's not the same situation.

At the trade deadline you rarely receive a pick that is not a middle-late round pick for the upcoming draft.

yeah, LAST SEASON

What don't you understand? When Carter was traded the 2012 draft was the upcoming draft. He got a 2013 pick, which was not the upcoming draft at the time.
