I think why it's a question is the cost.

Smyth can be had for a 4th round pick

Iginla would cost a 1st Rounder + Spooner(that type thing)

which might be worth it if we can get Iginla to sign and play here on our third line next year too

but would he consider himself still in the $7 million a year category for him to keep playing? or would a guy like this be happy to sign for somewhere in the $4 million range to take a less responsible role as a role player of a much better team?

imagine the depth as we'd be rolling arguably three 1st lines and our 4th looking more like a good 3rd line

Seidenberg was great for us on our cup run. He is a reliable solid defensive defenseman. My thoughts were if we wanted a top defenseman, it would probably cost us Boychuk or Ference.

Quite honestly I would be ok with keeping what we have defensively and maybe adding another solid Dman without subtracting anyone in our top 7 currently.

At this point I'd hate to see any of our defensemen moved. Anyone know the status of Aaron Johnson? Would ge be that much of a hindrance in the playoffs? I thought that he looked pretty solid in the games that he suited up.
On the other question, of Iginla or Smith, obviously Iggy still has "it" to a certain degree and I'd choose him of the two but there will be more than two bodies available and knowing Chia, he'll be looking at all situations. If I were to bet I'd say that he'll pull of the unexpected and that's okay with me.

Why the hell would someone want Seids gone before some of our other D-men ?

Bingo!

Thought Caron looked very solid against Philly, still holding out hope for him.

Would much rather Clowe to either Iginla or Smyth because of the cost. Rather have Soderberg for ZERO assets.

Good to see you switched back to deliciouspie. Think I was the first to call you DP? No pun intended. Who is the latest supermodel to get kicked out of your bed?

As someone who watches a ton of Flames games, I'd say Iggy, but the cost for him would be huge. At minimum, the Flames would want Boston's 1st, Malcolm Subban, Spooner, AND a roster player. That's a lot for a player who will be a UFA at the end of the season.

I love Iginla and realize we're in win-now mode. However, the cost is way too high and I think like some have said, we can get someone else at a lower cost

iginla is a good depth guy, just not sure on how much juice he's got left in the tank. But i wouldn't mind him for a season. But soderberg might be better...

Watched Clowe tonight pretty sharply...while Id never judge a player on one game, and in the past ive really liked Clowe, left very disappointed.

Iginla for me.

People tore my head off earlier for suggesting we get Smitty. I still think he would be a solid low cost addition to the team. He is also a guy you can stick in front of the net on the pp (he can still do it well). Lord knows we can always use a little more powerplay help and Smith isin't a guy who overthinks things.

No problem giving up the 1st.

I'd prefer to ship Knight over Spooner. (Something very Savard-esque about this Spooner kid)

Wouldnt mind sending Subban.

If Iginla agreed to re-sign here, I guess moving Peverly would be a must in order to stay under Cap next season. Would it be enough to keep Horton however?

Lucic Krejci Iginla
Marchand Bergeron Seguin
Soderberg Kelly Horton
Paille Campbell Thornton

Cap space be damned...

ah that's a tough one... Ryan Smyth is a beaut of a hockey player, but I think Iginla has more potential to be a Recchi-type vet, who'll put up points still... and he'll probably be able to skate faster then Recchi...
