Rumors that Iginla may be traded to the Bruins for Khokhlachev + Bartkowski + 1st (can't find the link but its somewhere in the Trade Forum's Iginla thread - maybe Bob Mackenzie?). Iggy was a healthy scratch tonight for the Flames.
People are saying its a steal for Boston in the Trade Forum but it seems pretty fair to me.
I would really hope so. An equivalent package from Detroit would be something like Sheahan/Jensen/1st.
Detroit was supposedly on Iginla's trade list early on, but a few days later we just disappeared from any speculation. Did he take us off the list or were we never on it?
I doubt we're an Iginla away from a Cup anyways, so it's best to hang onto our assets.
I'm not even sure if Detroit was on Iginla's list and I totally understand Holland not having any interest even if they were -- one player won't put them over the top and Iginla is too old to build around at this point.
But say this were a year or two ago. Lidstrom's still around and they've needed a scoring winger like Iginla for a while now. Does Holland pull the trigger on a deal like this? I'm not sure. He's seemed so gun-shy for the past few years.
