We should compile a list of all the trade offers Iggy has gotten on this board and email it to Feaster. *not joking.

If it meant Iggy getting a solid chance at the cup, and us getting a good return, so be it.

This, I would love to see us get a great return for him but to be 100% honest, with how he has dedicated himself whole-heartidly to Calgary as a city and the Flames as an organization, my top priority is him winning a cup.

Agreed.

Sure, we all have a second team, but i'm pretty sure Calgary must be his second team.

It's just weird to be a fan of 2 rival teams. Like, extremely weird.

So what if Calgary is his second team, which I don't believe it is, he's still a fan and liking another team doesn't change that. I'm a Penguins fan, so logically my favorite choice for a trade is to them so that I can see him win with another of my favorite teams, whats wrong with that?

same way you do.

so his taste is a little bit skewed, its bound to happen to someone who grows up in that region.

it doesn't give you the right to talk down to him like you are a better person.

no it's coming from a guy who is tired of people making assumptions on games they don't watch. I don't criticize people for being a fan, I criticize them for being buffoons.

Never said anything about being a better person, just don't see how you can fathom Iggy going to the Nucks regardless if he could win a cup. You can honestly sit their and say you would be happy to see Iggy lifting Vancouver's first Cup as a happy moment? Most Flames fans would say **** no!

Just because you and I can't fathom it or won't like it, doesn't mean someone else can't like it or imagine it. Being in the minority doesn't make him less of a fan.

Just an awkward/weird fan then.

I grew up near Edmonton my whole life (live here now), and absolutely despise the Oilers.

I'm sure a few Montreal fans are Toronto fans too, should go ask.

If Iginla raised a cup in Edmonton or Vancouver I don't think I could ever accept him as a Flame. I probably would sell my Jersey and cry for a very long time in the darkest place of my house. My childhood would be ruined, my dreams for a future crushed, and my purpose in life lost. This must never happen.

This makes me sad to even be called a Flames fan, grow up... He has given everything and received nothing. He deserves a shot to win, I don't care who it's with, but no matter who he gets traded to, I'll be cheering my ass off for him, glad that he's getting his shot to live out his dream. Sure it's too bad he couldn't do it here, but how selfish can you possibly be. If Vancouver is his best shot, so be it, for one playoff run I can alter my allegiances.

Boston, LA, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, or Chicago. I want to see Iginla go to the teams that have the best shots at winning the Cup.

Iginla's agent says he's waiting for a response from Iginla before he discusses a new contract with the Flames. I think its a good indication that he might be considering getting traded OR signing somewhere else in the future which is why he might be stalling.

I think he received a nice pay cheque? Somewhere around 70million dollars?

I will say Boston, Pitts, Philly, or the Rags. I wouldn't mind the Habs, Sharks, Kings or Blues either. All in all, I see his best shot to win the cup with Boston.
