Jarome Iginla

His quest for a Stanley Cup continues. Where does he end up next season? He's already put his Calgary house up for sale, and with the Flames in a clear cut rebuild, a return to Calgary is unlikely. I'm wondering what Pens fans thought of him. Was he worth the price (2 prospects and a 1st) they gave up? Would they like to see him return for another season?

Other possible destinations include: New York, Boston, Detroit, Chicago, and LA.

Prediction: Joins Darryl and Reggie in LA. 2 years - $10 million.

Maybe Vancouver? We were allegedly on his "list", Maybe not now that we got swept, though.

I'll guess Boston tells him to look elsewhere. Anaheim might be a good landing spot for him. Detroit doesnt have the room, NY is NY, Chicago maybe on the cheap, LA maybe I guess... How about Edmonton??? That'd be great

Honestly I loved what Iggy has done in his career but wouldn't want him in L.A at 5 mil a year. Present is not the past.

as a pens fan, it would have to be 3 million or less and a new coach for us to want iggy back. he cant keep up in dan b's system.

luckily we gave up nothing exciting so I was still a pleasure to have him on the penguins. great human being.

I believe with the new alignment next year. The Bruins and Pens could actually meet for the Cup.

A) Would probably be around 5 mil.

B) Looked to me like Bylsma's "system" involved using Iginla incorrectly. So yes, a new coach, but not for the reason you stated.

No...conferences still exist.

The Pens & Bruins very well could have a re-match next year...and that would be hilarious.


I expect Iginla to re-sign in Pittsburgh...I really don't think I want him back, though. I'd be intrigued to see how he works with a coach that would actually use him properly (note to Bylsma: career right wingers shouldn't be shoe-horned onto the left wing when you have two guys who can play both wings in the top six), but his effort level was just sad.

Smart. Having watched all his games with the Pens, I think someone will regret giving him 5 million or more per/year. I certainly wouldn't want him back with the Pens at that number.

Gonna be funny to watch him the last couple years chase a championship jumping from one team to another. Odds are his best chance would be to stay in Pitt but I don't think they'd even want him.

He should have accepted the trade to Boston to begin with. That's the style of game he plays. I'm not sure why he chose Pittsburgh, so he can play with that **** Crosby?

I'd like to see him win a Stanley Cup. He's not the power forward he once was, but he's still capable of scoring 25-30 goals. My guess is Darryl will get in his ear.

not for $5M. his lackluster performance (especially in part from being used incorrectly by Bylsma on the off-wing on which he was never comfortable) isn't worth that kind of money. however, he is still one superb human being and deserves his respect. i hope the Pens give him another look (with Bylsma far, far away from this team) but not at that price.

He fits on a mid-tempo team, at best. If he comes to the Canucks he'll be lucky to be playing in the same postal code as the likes of Kesler.

5 mil wont happen from our end.

he was misused in the sense that he cant go north-south with malkin like bylsma expected him to. should have been with Crosby

Chicago is out unless he wants to take $4m max per on a one- or two-year deal. They just don't have the cap space flexibility to take on anything more.

It's an interesting question: Would Bowman would rather sign Igilna to a short, (I-want-a-cup) value deal and let Bickell go, or keep Bickell with a longer deal at @ ~$3.5 per. Similar guys like Ladd and Buff have "left" to become hugely impactful players, and even Brouwer is doing OK in his larger role in DC.

Nothing more than 1 or 2 years at $2 million a year max.

He's better than Raymond, Booth, Higgins and Hansen. Care to guess who were Kesler's linemates at some point last year?

If we could get him under five million, it is definitely something to look into. Hard to say what tempo we are, seeing the whole no coach thing.

Absolutely.

It was a deal you make...if you intend to win the Cup.

The Pens didn't win the Cup, obviously, and Iginla looked slow as molasses this series in particular.

That does not change the point: if you are the Pens and you have a chance to get a proven veteran for shiny futures (that is, not altering your NHL roster), you go all in.

He'd be a near perfect fit on the right side of John Tavares..... not likely he'd sign here though.
