He'd have to take a discount. I feel bad for Calgary fans.

And if the Pens flop, I could see him going somewhere else for a chance too. He is calling his own shots between now and retirement so might as well go all out.

NTC hurt a lot but it's also a shortened season. You can't make a straight comparison with a typical 82 games season trade before the deadline. There's only 14 games remaining before the playoffs.

Let alone an early exit, Pittsburgh is going to be the laughing stock of the league if they don't win the cup.

Can't wait to see Boston playing Pittsburgh in 3 weeks. Watch out Iggy.

Pittsburgh has so much cap space too. They can easily get another piece if they wanted to on D.

they can't. This is a closing window of opportunity and Shero is going for it hard.



They could re-sign Iggy at maybe $4-5M at most and have another $5M to sign their UFAs and RFAs. No way they are re-signing Morrow, Murray, and all the others though. It will be a call-up heavy year if they're going that route and Cooke is out looking for a job.

And that's exactly what Shero would either do if he already knew that Malkin will take the free agency route, summer 2014.

Would be by far the most dynamic dman we've had since Nieds. The guy can be a mess in his own zone, but his breakout ability/mobility/offensive instincts are incredible.

But you know this board, he'd get dragged through the mud after every questionable play in the d-zone

It really doesn't. What it does is limit the trade partners Feaster can dance with... it doesn't mean he has to hand him the face of his franchise for pocket change to the team Iggy chose to go to.

I'm fine with Iginla choosing the Pens, I'm just baffled that Feaster didn't get wayyyy more then what he got.

Yeah, it limited feaster's option to ONE team. And the Pens weren't going to get bent over for a player they don't absolutely need. So it was trade him to the pens or he goes nowhere until the summer....and you get nothing.

If Iginla says, you're trading me to Pittsburgh or I'm leaving in the offseason and somehow Pittsburgh catches onto that, Feaster is going to get robbed. I have a feeling that kind of happened.

Shero doesn't know that Iggy wants to play for the Pens and the Pens only. It's up to Feaster to "play the game" and try to stretch the elastic as much as he can.

He had a extra week to "play the game" and try to convince Shero that he was probably heading to Boston or let the media do the job for him, wich was done yesterday night when the entire world was convince that Iginla was headed to the Bruins.

To me, it just looks like a botched move that cost the Flames several key pieces on a team that desperatly needs them.

I agree with everyone else who wants the pens in the first round, we would have EVERY Eastern hockey fan that isn't a pens fan on our side, and the devils have always played the pens tough. Not many other fan bases would call for the favorites in the entire NHL in the first round. Only thing I would be afraid of is Brodeurs lack of experience vs morrow and iginla, he struggles against players he doesn't know well.

Again, what is said between Iginla and Feaster has no impact on the return. It's up to Feaster to play mind games between Chiarelli and Shero.

There's a entire week left before the deadline passes by and like some smart Gm already said "when you have time on your side, you use it"... I guess Feaster doesn't belong in the same league as the guy I just quoted
