Yeah it was definitely Bourque spearing Doughty...Gio was famous to us for that game where he wrecked Dustin Brown's life. I swear Giordano was just stalking him..he must have hit him HARD at least 10 times
We should try to land Giordano along with Iggy just so Brown can feel safer on the ice.
Then don't expect to land Iginla. I don't think you people realize how this process works. These teams - Chi, LA, Bos, Pit - are all interested in acquiring Iginla for a Cup run, therefore they will pay the price that Calgary asks. For example, if Calgary says they want 5 1st round picks, these teams will fork over 5 1st round picks. It's that simple.
Go back one page and read the Calgary Herald article. Calgary's mgmt and ownership is perfectly content with Iggy walking away as a free agent this summer, rather than trade him away for what they believe is less than fair value for their franchise player.
what? this is ridiculous, you actually think the inquiring teams will pay WHATEVER calgary asks?...good luck with that, the guy is a shell of his former self and the Flames will be lucky to get 1 1st and some minor pieces, but if they shoot for the moon, then they will lose him for nothing; the guy is wanting a Cup no doubt, he is a competitor, so I cant see him re-signing with the Flames in the off season when he knows there is 0 chance of them being competitive for the next 5 years...and before you argue 5 years, who is the team building around? baertschi? yay! nemisz? double yay! They are the worst run organization I can think of and that includes the Islanders because at least the Islanders can admit they suck and make some trades to assist in the rebuild.
No but really, I think it's probably even the likely scenario that Iggy stays put. Really, it's a combination of inept management and Jarome really probably not actually wanting to go anywhere.
Iginla married his high school sweetheart, Kara, and the couple has three children: daughter Jade and sons Tij and Joe. They had been dating since they were in the eighth grade.
Doesn't really seem like a guy that bails when he has a better opportunity.
Doesn't mean it'd make any sense, though. I'm just saying that given the situation, I don't think Iginla goes anywhere.
Loyalty, inept management, and the fact that the Flames and their fans are going to expect a return completely out of proportion with an aging rental's worth stack the deck in favour of Iggy staying home.
Now, Corey Perry might yet move... but I think the Ducks' record makes that a pretty difficult thing to imagine as well.
No. There will be no conditional 1st, unless the prospect is really good. Your best young pieces are untouchable (understandably so).. Seguin, Hamilton, and maybe Subban...
Thats pretty close to my ideal realistic return from Boston, if that happened I wouldn't to upset with that.
Having said that most of the other interested teams can put up a similar offer. I think we will see a small bidding war..nothing outrageous but maybe the Flames get an extra 2nd or a surprisingly touted prospect.
Because those are games where the Flames could have been eliminated... Or moved on.. the biggest games in the series.
That's not what I said at all.
You said starting from the Stanley Cup Finals game 7 in 2004.
You purposely ignored the last games in each series before that to support your arguments. Your facts are selective. You ignore those those which disprove your theory, and blow out of proportion the stats that you think make you look smart.
