Rumor and Proposal Thread Vol. 10: Iggy To Pittsburgh

Old thread close to 1000:

Insanely unlikely but how would HFOil react to that?

Hemsky has more value than Iginla. Iginla is 35 and isn't the kind of player that you'd expect to decline slowly.

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.
He wouldn't do so out of respect to their fans. That being said, if Tambo doesn't make an offer, I'll be annoyed.

We got a better return for Penner IMO

Alexander Khokhlachev HF Talent Analysis:

Slick puck carrier, creative passer and courageous goal scorer. Khokhlachev has a knack for surveying the ice, disguising his intensions and then distributing the puck to the best option. Without the puck, he’s willing to get to the dirty areas and has an explosive release, making him a dangerous finisher as well. Defensive work is spotty, as a winger he’s prone to losing his man, as a center he struggles to read the coverage.

Skating is also a mixed bag, some things he does very well; he has good acceleration, crosses over well, good top-speed, he can stop on a dime, and he’s able to shake defenders by opening up his hips, putting his skates at “3” and “9” o’clock a la Jeff Skinner, but he also lacks elite top-speed, struggles with changes in direction and with skating backwards in general.


I'm sure he will be a good player but...that last line

The funny thing too is there's almost no way Boston re-signs Iginla.

Lucic, Seguin and Marchand's extensions kick in next season.

They'll have about $6M in cap space and that's without Rask/Khudobin signed too.

Well, at least that's out of the way.

Now it's time to get Lucic!

Feasters hands were tied by a NTC as well and GMs knew that and took advantage of it.

Flames fans are pissed, the league is laughing at feaster. Just watch Iginla go back to calgary next year. Calgary gets two prospects for free. Seems like a wait and see situation.

Ehhh. I'd say it's close.

Take out the 3rd we got and I think it's pretty even.

Have to keep in mind Penner had another year on his contract too.

As much as I'm laughing at the Flames plight, this move is embarrassing. Just a joke. Unless Iggy said BOS and that's it I can't believe the return. Pizza the Hut should be ashamed. I can't believe I'm happy the Oil have Troll face. I have no words for this move.

The New Battle of Alberta

Feaster and Tambellini in an all out slugfest, who can drive their franchise into the ground faster?

Hint: Tambellini's got a 4 year head start, but hey, you can't blame Feaster for not trying.

Tambo strikes first with medicore FA signings, move succesful: eager sent to minors

Feaster counters by trying give away their 1st rd pick, move unsuccessful

When you say Iginla do you think Penner? If the trade ends out Koko and Bart with no first what then... Just a bad trade. No way around it.

I can't believe that it is actually a conditional 1st. It must be a condition that is going to be met.

Otherwise you just traded the all time face of your franchise for two B grade prospects...

There has to be more to the deal. I can't fathom it otherwise.

Lmfao, CP is comedy gold right now...Feaster is making Tambo look like a genius right now...finally flamers fans have come to the realization that they are going to suck for a long long time, don't feel sorry for them at all. This is going to be fun the next several years.

Wonder what Feaster's stance on a rebuild is now?

Enjoy the bottom, you shall be there for a while now hahahaha

As I understand it the condition is that he re-signs with the Bruins.

He's purely a rental player in my eyes too. Because of both contractual obligations and upcoming prospects. Funny thing is that this potential first round pick is in the ballpark of where they would be selecting if they HAD a 2nd round pick. Yikes.

Koko is pretty much worth a 1st, imo.

Was a good KHLer and a dominant OHLer this year.

Most people thought he would go in the 1st round back in 2011.


I think Calgary could have done worse.

I know that it's easy to poke fun at the Flames but man, that has to be rough for them to lose their heart and soul player of the last decade, a guy who was their franchise and gave his all for the city of Calgary. I kind of feel bad for them. We can certainly sympathize after dealing with the heartbreak of the Smyth trade.

If it's on NHL.com I'll consider it a done deal.
