Iginla?

With the Blues sitting in a good spot in the standings, would the team be interested in a guy like Iginla should CGY determine to be non-playoff bound by deadline?

Cost would be high but may pay off seeing as how he has very little offensive assistance from anyone else on the flames (and still managed to be a great scorer all this time).

To CGY:

Stewart
Rattie
2012 1st rounder
2013 2nd rounder

To STL:

Iginla
Horak
2012 3rd rounder

After a slow start he has regained his form, but that is an awful lot for 1 1/2 seasons of Iginla. Who knows if he would stay or how much longer he can be this productive.

No way do we give that up for a player who will be 35.

Not a smart trade for the Blues. If Iginla was 32, I would consider it. The old Blues regime killed the team by making these kind of moves. I want the Blues to stay the course and keep building with youth. If they are wanting to make a block buster trade, I would rather it be for an elite type of Dman to pair with Petro. That's what the Blues lack more than anything imo. A 25 minute eating dman that brings some physicality to the D.

With Iginla being one of my all-time favorite players I'd really love to see him in a Blues jersey. He's one of the most consistent goal scorers in the league, and he always shows up in the play-offs. That said, I think the asking price is a little high here. How about Stewart, Rattie and a 2012 2nd for just Iginla? That seems more than fair. Still over payment on our end, and both sides are happy.

I would be interested but I would bid low because he's just a little to old to consider over paying for, probably one second tier prospect and next years second is the most I would be willing to pay. If that wasn't enough I would walk away.

Not a trade I would make. I might be in the minority here but I still have hopes of Stewart becoming the 30 goal 70 points player we all know he's capable of being. On top of the Rattie has been something special this season also he may be a pretty good top 6 NHL forward capable of 25-30 goals 55-65 points maybe even more. I just would like to see how this team as is performs in the playoffs. Maybe a similar trade could be made in the offseason if we determine we are a player like Iginla away from the cup.

Thats giving up to much IMO. If Iginla was younger i think it would be a good deal.

No, that puts the future into for the Blues in a bad spot, besides, I like Iginla right where he is and I think he should finish his career where it started

That's the definition of a one sided deal. Counter offer would be a quarter of that.

No Way. At this point I wouldn't trade Stewart even up for him. When you take into account age and salary plus Stewart's potential.

No, thank you. Two seasons ago, I'd have been willing to discuss a trade like this.

Iginla is good and all but he is too old for the Blues to spend significant assets on and he costs too much with the NHL now paying the blues payroll I cant see the team doing anything unless a new owner is in place soon and even then I dont think the Blues will be willing to give up significant roster players.

Last year EJ was expendable bc of the great play by Petro. This year the Blues dont have anybody that is playing much better than expected like petro was so unless some one really starts tearing it up offensively I dont see the Blues trading any roster players unless they are severely under performing.

The Blues are still a very young team and anything passed the first round is a bonus this year, especially since the chances are high of getting either Detroit or Chicago. There is no point in trading for someone that old this quick, let the players develop this year and see what they have and make changes accordingly next year or the year after.

I'd trade Stewart for Iginla. But I wouldn't add Rattie.

We can't afford 7 mil for a player.
Iginla is on his way out even if he does put up 30-35 goals next year thats still too much to pay.
We need players that are going to be entering their primes in the next 2-4 years which is what 1st rounders and prospects currently are not players who will be retired by then.
If we could get iggy for free for one season paying him 3.5 the rest of the way we might be able to do it but until management gets figured out hes not a viable option.

Yeah I'd make a straight up trade too, but I doubt they'd bite. I see Rattie as an expandable prospect so I'd add him if it came down to it. Can you imagine these lines? Good Lawd!

Perron-Backes-Iginla
Steen-Berglund-Oshie

Nah. The real proposal should be Stewart for Iginla, and I'm not sure I'd even do that.

I think we are seeing the real Rattie this year. Many were worried because he was undersized, but since he quit playing baseball in the offseason he has been putting on some muscle. Rattie was always thought of as a high skill guy and now he is showing it. Look at his stats. Then look at a lot of WHL top drafted players. He is doing something special this year. Compare his and Bobby Ryan's numbers. Now, I am not saying he will be Bobby Ryan (big size difference), but the guy is a scorer.

First you'd have to believe the Flames want to move Iginla and conversely, if Iginla wants to be moved.

I doubt it happens and honestly, I don't think Iginla is the piece you give up a significant amount for at this stage. I'd think a smart trade would involve a pretty solid playmaker-a guy that can distribute the puck and create a little space.

I wouldn't even trade Stewart straight up for Iginla. You don't trade a two time 28 goal forward for an aging 30 goal forward. In a few years Stewart will be the next Iginla. Do you want to give that up for a few extra goals. This season Iginla will end up with 10-12 more goals than Stewart. Is that worth Rattie(leading goal scorer and points leader in the WHL as a 18yr old)a first round pick in a deep draft and a second round pick. I don't, and I'm sure army wont either

Stewart will NEVER be as good as Iginla.

If the Blues wouldn`t trade Stewart for Iginla straight up, might be time to find a new GM.

The Flames would laugh at that proposal.

I really am amazed at some of the posts here. I agree that it wouldn't make sense to trade Stewart with Rattie or Schwartz, but some of you wouldn't trade Stewart straight up for Iginla. When Iginla starts to seriously decline, Tarasenko will have become an impact NHL forward. The only thing we truly lack is a consistent, go to goal scorer.

Iginla being traded is an unlikely scenario, so I guess it really doesn't matter. When are people going to realize that Stewart just doesn't have a place to fit in on this team. He got bumped off of the Backes line for Oshie and Oshie scored, so I hope Hitch keeps them together. Does Stewart go back with Berglund now? But if we can get an actual 35+ goal scorer for him, even for 1 1/2 seasons, I'm all for it. Does Stewart even have a place in the future with Oshie, Tarasenko, Steen, Schwartz, D'Agostini, Sobotka, and McDonald all capable of playing the wings.

I know I'm probably going to take some heat for this, but honestly what has Stewart done this season? Even in the past few games where he is kind of getting back to normal, he still only has 7 goals in 21 games in December and January. In those 21 games, he has just 12 points, so Stewart playing like his old self, really isn't playing like his old self.

Unless I'm missing something.

While paying him to miss the playoffs... who cares.
