Let me get this straight - you would rather have Iginla on the Hawks than Saad?

Have you watched the 20 year old LW on the first year of his ELC play this season?

If Iginla is acquired, I'd want him on the 2nd line with Kane. Toews has gotten to play with Hossa and Saad all season...Kane's been doing it all by himself. I'd like to even things up a bit and give Kane some fire power to work with.

Saad is already better than Bickell. Saad has been, is and will continue to be a top-6 player. Bickell's ceiling is where he is now - 3rd line. Until this season most Hawk fans would have been happy to get a bag of donuts for him.

I wont even mention how Iggy is producing more then Hossa at his advanced age.


Hawks want a Cup, they give up pieces such as Saad if need be for a player like Iggy.

I have no problem dropping Saad down in the lineup if the Hawks get Iginla, but any suggestion that Saad isn't more valuable to the Hawks this year and in the future than the 35 year old Iginla is just idiotic.

I should have just considered the source. Shame on me for getting sucked into this dialogue.

Sure have. And have come to the conclusion that if Bickell was playing on that line his numbers would be better then they are now which, are better then Saads.


And how could you not want a player like Iggy on the Hawks? What does Saad bring that Iggy doesn't and better?

This I want to hear......

Yes you trade Saad for Iginla. That 2nd line would be ridiculous. Who will teams fear more in the playoffs Saad or Iginla? A rookie or a future future hall of famer? Geez no brainer there.

Explain.


Is Baertschi more valuable then Hossa?

Iginla can also take draws very effectively which would be a huge help to Kane.
