Lavoie: Expect the Calgary Flames to be most active team at the deadline

Renaud Lavoie was on the Sabres-Habs pregame and was discussing the deadline and when asked who he's hearing will be most active, he responded that he's heard the Flames will be and will be doing a lot to change around the team, as it is sitting in the basement of the Western Conference and what the team's been the last few years hasn't worked.

He also mentioned the Chicago Blackhawks might be a trading partner, adding that they might want to add a "big piece" in the hopes of making a run at the Cup again.

First, besides the big fish (Iginla), what other players do you think will be heading out of Calgary? Second, do you think there's a trade to be made between Chicago and Calgary? Which Flames could the Hawks want?

Bouwmeester, Cammalleri, and Stempniak would be the biggest pieces. Other possibilities include Tanguay, Giordano, Kiprusoff.

Small targets would be guys like Begin, Jackman, Comeau, Butler, Smith, Sarich, and Babchuk.

Could see the Hawks being interested in Stajan or Iginla.

You said besides him, but I think that is the one they'd want. Not so much for what he brings on the ice (he does seem a bit past his prime), but more the intangibles and what he would add to the locker room. Sort of the same effect Bourque had with Colorado.

If a trade for iginla did go down, who would the hawks give up?

Iginla for a 1st + Leddy?

Cammy would look great playing LW for the Hawks. We would absolutely have to east around 2million of the cap-hit, but I could see something in the works there. Cammy @ 4million cap hit is a very valuable piece.

To answer the OP:

I see Iginla, Cammy, Stempniak, Kipper traded at the deadline. I believe we will see JayBow traded at/around the draft. It's time for changes. Big changes

When Lavoie said "big piece", my first thought was the Hawks want Iginla. Would be an excellent chance for him to win it all and could really push the Hawks over the edge, even with Kane and Hossa on the roster.

Bowman has said that he will look to make trades and could target a smaller piece (maybe a fourth line center) and that he doesn't want to trade away anyone significant. So, any trade with the Flames, involving Iginla or not, would probably be for picks/prospects, as Bowman doesn't seem willing to subtract any roster players who have been a part of the team's success this season. Chicago has quite a few good prospects though and I'm sure wouldn't be opposed to giving up picks either, including their first.

They wouldn't be trading Leddy. He's a top 4 D (better than brodie) and is only 21/22.

Would you Cal fan be happy to see Feaster write an offer sheet to Cody Hodgson for almost O'rilly money ?

I think Calgary should do it.

There is big demand for Iginla though. They might have to.

If it's that big, then they will stick with the original plan of looking for a depth center and let other team's pay that price. Nick Leddy has top pairing potential and at worst should be a strong #3.

3 years too late by the Flames. All their top players are too old and won't fetch a kings ranson anymore.

What a shame, I feel bad for that fanbase.

Really good seeing that the Flames will do a rebuild.


I really want to see the "true" battle of Alberta to come back.

This makes me happy. It also makes me sad that we've reached this point.

****. Man. I hate to see this team like this. But I also don't, after what we've been through.

Bring on April 3.

I think the issue is more that these guys have term left. Lots of teams could be very interested in Cammalari/Tanguay/Stajan/Stempniak. They are all contributing like top 6/9 forwards. But it's tough to add a 3+ million cap hit for beyond this season for a lot of teams.

Well until the Flames get a Hindsight Time Machine, they have to work in the present and not the past.

Calgary really should try increasing their depth by dealing Iginla and Bouwmeester. Iginla may not be traded; however, Bouwmeester, I think, needs to go.
