Loved this tweet

@dallash717 it doesn't matter though because Feaster's interpretation of conditional picks is different.

Tambo doesn't look so bad now. I can't believe we got more for Penner.

Just imagine Iginla signed with his hometown Oilers in the off-season.

I'm almost surprised a scenario like this hasn't happened before: The Oilers and Bruins make a gentleman's agreement in the off-season to save the Bruins their first rounder. The Oilers sign Iginla as an unrestricted free agent and then trade him to Boston for a 3rd rounder. Voila - Boston keeps their pick and Calgary is screwed.

Wouldn't be surprised if we just swapped GMs in the offseason

A lot of the Toronto media like to do that. What's even more pathetic is he had to mention Price as a franchise player just to make a dumb, unnecessary point that has nothing to do with anything at all.

I ****ing hate Arthur and Simmons. Two of the biggest idiots in the business.

Can't believe I feel sorry for Flames fans haha. But they just lost their all-time best player and got a garbage package in return. I was heartbroken when Smyth was traded so this is probably even worse. Tough times in Calgary.

the only way this move makes since is if Iggy said Boston or Pitt and that's it. just awful deal. 1st and a prospect should have been a no brainer just awful. Although ROR is a franchise player so maybe Koko is the next coming.

is it actually possible that there is more to this trade? (like mps going through boston to calgary in that lucic trade? ) because if not, calgary just got fleeced royally.

edit: also if not, why in the hell wouldn't feaster have waited until the deadline? it makes no sense.

I don't think they have a second round this year to begin with either. Such a weak return for Iginla. Why not get a prospect with top line potential instead of two mediocre pieces that the org. Is littered with.

I love this...if Iggy wants to come back to Calgary in the summer, it screws with Calgary's future.

It's like a No-Jarome Clause

Why? I mean, they might get a 1st rounder out of this when all is said and done.

I was just thinking that. What if Tambo actually did pull off that Lucic deal and the condition on Iginla re-signing is that if he does the Flames get our pick and if he doesn't they get the Bruins 1st?

Insanely unlikely but how would HFOil react to that?

I don't understand why Feaster wouldn't have waited right up until zero hour to squeeze every last drop. Strange. Great rumour mongering all night though. Highly enjoyable.

Yeah, Arthur is a jackass. He was one of the many scribes extolling the virtues of the Oilers at the start of the year saying that they were going to take the next step. The Oilers let him down so now he's going to take some shots.

So.. Chiarelli fleecing the Flames means he can afford to be fleeced from the Oilers?
