If any Flames fans want to trade with Edmonton, we'd love Giordano please.

I know that Bob Hartley really like Raphael Diaz, but I don't think the habs should trade him

Im guessing a trade for sarich would be like some other recent depth trades 4th in next years draft; if Im Calgary though I'd probably do Weber straight up

No thanks!
I'm becoming a one-trick pony defending Stajan lately but I believe he's been the Flames best forward this year, at the very least the most important just since he actually plays center.

He doesn't get PP time so all 18 of his points are even strength. He's been matching up exclusively against others team top talent since mid February and he still leads the Flames in +/- with +11 where the top line is a collective -30.

Still, not an option for 2nd line center on any contender and he's far from that gritty 3rd line center teams like having going into the playoff battle. But teams could do a lot worse than Stajan on their third line this year.

I would be really surprised if ownership gives him the green light here.

Glencross would bring the Flames one of the best packages.

Probably or a mid round pick.

I'd be interested to see how much teams like Detroit, Toronto and Winnipeg would be interested in Tanguay. He can play in any of their top 6 and make an impact.

GlenX should be completely off the table unless someone offers us something absurd. Like Oilers 1st for example.

I hope Calgary let's the other teams pick the bones dry. They are obviously the go to team at the deadline. This team needs an overhaul and Fester NEEDS to be on the phone and getting what he can.

He definitely has an opportunity to really retool his team. Something he can do without gutting it. If Calgary can walk away from this deadline with 2 more 1st round picks and a couple of heavy prospects without gutting their team, it'll be good. Whether that's moving Iginla, Kipper, Tanguay or a combination of something like that, who knows.

There's not a lot of sellers so the price is going to be up there for some of their guys.

Which wasn't a terrible bet. They lose a potential top 5 pick (and especially with him on the team, that top 5 is hard to get into) for a player barely in his 20s who's already a core player in the NHL.

Colorado isn't having any problems getting a top 5 pick with ROR.

I hope the Toronto Maple Leafs are in on the trade talks for Jay Bouwmeester or Miikka Kiprusoff. Both would go a long way in bolstering different holes in our line-up for the foreseeable future.

Yeah, but Colorado's major issues don't stem from their center depth as they do have Duchene and Stastny.

The Flames center depth over half of the year has included Stajan and whatever 3 wingers they decided to convert that particular day. And with 7 forwards producing at least a 50 point pace (in an 82 game season) they aren't terrible in terms of offensive production. What they are having issues with is keeping the puck out of their net. Kiprusoff is having an off year and they could use defensive depth but a center capable of winning faceoffs and playing as a defensive anchor (like Langkow and Conroy have done before) is exactly what Iginla needs on his line.

Who cares if Iginla, Cammalleri and Tanguay can combine to score a goal a game if they're giving up two. Put O'Reilly in between Iginla and Tanguay and that line might not produce quite as much but they aren't giving up nearly as much either, in my opinion. The team would still have glaring issues simply because Kiprusoff is playing like he is, but they would be filling their most obvious hole and should be better (to what degree would be uncertain) because of it.

I have never, ever heard that opinion expressed before. This unique and original sentiment is surely the first of its kind thus making you its creator.

Seriously. Everybody knows this, but thanks for enlightening us anyways.

I would gladly trade with Edmonton but it would require and overpayment. I doubt you would be willing to give what it takes.

Glencross won't waive his NMC and the Flames shouldn't even ask him to. It's pointless to even bring him up.

Than you better hope they lose their next five games. If they win, Holland will go after a couple of veterans for a playoff run. He actually said it yesterday.

Detroit has so many legitimate prospects now it's actually quite remarkable. Look at Frk putting up 8 points yesterday. They even have Marchenko and Bachman who are becoming more viable daily. Especially Bachman.

The Wings will go after guys and they wont be depth guys. If they lose the next few games, they'll probably stand pat. We shall see pretty quickly here.

I agree he is the perfect embodiment of Calgary hockey and should remain a leader for the next generation that said if someone like Shwartz and Granlund was offered I would move him.

Would the Flames grant teams the permission to speak with Iginla about a potential contract extension? I would think that if they permitted clubs to do so that it could increase the interest and the offers would become more attractive from clubs, knowing that Iginla would be willing to sign an extension.

It increases his value if teams know that they can at least get more than 10-12 games out of Iginla. Look at how much mileage the Avs got out of Ray Bourque or more recently the Bruins with Mark Recchi. They were rentals who lasted more than one season with the club they were dealt to, and they went on to win a Cup.

On HNIC tonight they said Iginla does NOT want to be a rental. I took that to mean wherever he gets moved, he has every intention of signing a contract with.

How so if he won't waive his NMC?
