I really think Jagr is the best option for us right now...

Damien Cox ‏@DamoSpin 5m May not be what CAL fans want to hear, but Ben Hanowski, one of 2 collegians acquired in Iginla deal, can be UFA on Aug. 15th.

LOL

I forget the transaction but wasn't Calgary's management team involved in a near-disaster deal earlier this year?

Anyone see him play regularly this year? I know PHX has a lot of D's, especially young ones like Stone-Summers-Rundblad on the roster or knocking on the door, so it's obvious why they may move him.

He's got the size we need and he's always been a player with a lot of tools. I think he'd be better on the 2nd PP than Gorges or Bou.

The fact he's under contract for next season @ 2.975 M could be a great thing. At that money, if he's still solid, you can trade him for close to what you moved to get him this year if a kid emerges.

I think you're thinking of the Ryan O'Reilly offer sheet.

Just because you have teams that are trading does not mean you have to go out and make bad trades!

We are missing a couple of players to bring us to the next level and Ryan Clowe is not one of them!
Not all habs fans are knowledgeable or capable of understanding we have to balance the present with the future. Clowe has looked slow and very average this year, if you've seen him, you wouldn't want to give up much to get him if he continues playing the way he is. Is he worth a high 2nd round + leblanc, probably not. The penguins wanted to go for it this year, they realize there are only maybe a couple of teams that could challenge them in the east, if that, and they just needed a couple more pieces to really be considered the favorite. Which they now obviously are. Our situation is different, we are still in rebuild mode and should be.

There is also a good chance that second rounder will end up being better than Clowe is, right now Clowe is just a bruiser and not doing much. Then you add in Leblanc? It's not as if Clowe is a bargain at his salary, he's not.

Calgary's management is a serious head scratcher. First the O'Reilly gaffe and now trading their franchise player in a package that has them receive a player who can be a UFA on August 15? I don't get their management.

Feaster is horrible, they need to clean house like we did and get the rebuild done wright, wonder who the next GM will be, Burke maybe?

well... I agree.

I would imagine it was someones responsibility to take care of the due-diligence on this... so some scout is likely to be fired here soon... or some assistant or whatever...

Also, it was Iggy who picked the deal. I think the Flames preferred the Boston offer but Iggy wanted to play for the Pens (over the B's... who knows he may have preferred B's over Kings/Hawks). So the Flames weren't in a great position ... this was a favour to Iginla and that's how it should come off, imho.

The real question is... was it right to accommodate Iggy so much at the expense of the franchise... we will know the answer to that on July 1 or whenever he signs his next contract.

don;t think the habs will do much

but to me they need an other big winger who can check and chip on goals, to replace White/Moen

they do need a rugged d-man to replace Tinordi for the playoff push

so who do we know who fits except Clowe unless we get him at a fair value no 1st round pick

and on D not sure who is out there but Reghr type maybe, someone to clear the front to help our goalies

Poach Giordano out of Calgary while Feaster is still the GM.

Its a pretty bad trade indeed. The Pens first rounder won't be very high as well and knowing Calgary's terrible drafting record they likely won't find a steal.

It might be a great coup for the Pens but changing so much of their roster close to the playoffs might not be a great idea.

Clowe can't fetch a 1st and a decent prospect if Iginla got a 1st and 2 NCAA prospects.

Players I'd be interested to see MB acquire : Streit, Boyle, Klesla, Giordano, Tanguay, Torres, Clowe. What do you guys think?

yeah kinda agree Feaster is horrible in making trades, lets see what they have

how Glencross not sure his contract situation 2.5m for an other 2 years after this he fits what MB wants to do, hard to play against, can play 3rd line or step on 1st or 2nd if there is injuries

Leblanc's trade value is probably at an all time low.. We would have to give alot more for Glencross..

Fair value assessment: Leblanc = 5th rounder.

I would not trade LeBlanc right now unless a team specifically wanted him and gave full value. Why sell low?

Who says Clowe fits? He would be a slow man on a fast team. The same might apply to Regehr who has lost a few steps since his Calgary heydays.
