In my opinion the Bruins are better with Iggy over Pev. You may disagree but a top 6of Lucic - Krejci - Iggy and March - Bergy - Segs. Will more then make up for your loss of depth on that 3rd line center spot.

which up until this point have been picks and prospects.
well that is a different argument. The argument I am talking about it the loss of depth on the bottom 6 is a reason to not trade Pev for Iggy (if that was the sceniero)

I know. Third line centers are easier to find than goal-scoring, top 6 wingers (arguably top 3). Kelly may be back, Yeti is an option, & they could always make another move if need be. Just get the best player in the deal & move on from there.

Yeah he's always seemed to hate the Bruins. I think it goes back to the days when he was a Player Representative for the NHLPA. Probably because of Jeremy Jacobs.

Not to mention re-signing Iginla could force us to let another player like Ference or Horton walk.

The goal should be to get Iginla while keeping the rest of our NHL roster intact. What is so hard to understand about that?
because the only roster player being talked about was Pev or Pie. Someone said that they would not trade Pev because it weakens the bottom 6 to much. I am saying that should not be a reason to not make the trade.

what is so hard to understand about that?

Specter says Calgary wants goal tending but Chiarelli won't budge on Subban.

I'm not sure that I'd go that far. He did play with Savard in Calgary.

I wouldn't want to discount the benefit of a strong 3rd line, though. There has been recent talk here in our folder around this and how the strength of that 3rd line helped cement the Cup win. Having all those lines rolling wear down the opposition. So, while all the interest is on Iginla, is there front office movement around getting a strong centre to replace Kelly? I want him back, but broken bones are broken bones.

If Malcolm ****ing Subban is the reason the Bruins don't get Iginla I am going to be livid.
