I just don't buy the Iginla rumors. I think there's definite interest out there and probably has been for years even when he wasn't "available" but I'd still be surprised to see him go. I think the captain goes down with his ship. Iginla's not a guy I see wanting to leave no matter how bad it is. I'll believe it when I see it.
I suspect we'll see a flurry of trades especially from the bottom-feeders, as usual. The only real sellers I see at the moment are Florida, Buffalo, Washington, Calgary, and Colorado. It's just too close. Of course that can and will change by Deadline Day.
Like I said with Iginla, I'll believe it when I see it. Miller, maybe, considering how bad things have gotten but still I doubt it. Although, Ruff was fired and no one ever thought that would actually happen so who knows? Vanek though, no chance IMO. Vanek, Miller, and Pominville are the three common names being thrown around from the Sabres besides Regehr, Leopold, and Stafford and the former three aren't part of the problem. Moving any or all of them makes us significantly worse.
From Buffalo, Regehr, Leopold, Stafford, Weber, and Gerbe are guys I could see going. I'll be pretty pissed off if Regehr goes but the other four can go and make sure the door doesn't hit them on the way out. Also wouldn't mind dealing Sekera or Ennis if we're putting together a package for another player in return. I don't want to shop those guys but I wouldn't be opposed to moving them for the right return if it allows us to acquire a good player. Hecht and Scott could also be choices to get something for but neither of them hold really any value. Hecht could fetch a sixth or seventh, even FC, but we won't find it worth it and will just let him retire here out of respect unless he really wants to go to a contender.
With the whole Kaleta situation, maybe they ship him out, although I won't like it. Things aren't good between him and the coaches and teammates right now so I could see it happening. Only safe players really are Hodgson, Ott, Vanek, Pominville, Foligno, Ehrhoff, and Myers. Everyone else has a chance at being moved IMO although Miller is a slim one.
