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.
I see Bickell getting an offer of $4 mill per.
Iginla gets 5 on the open market maybe a tad less

Because of one bad playoff series u fire a coach. If this happens its absolutely ridiculous if your right it's absolutely ridiculous. If you are wrong,you r o diff than 90% of the posters round here,which isn't shocking

I actually wouldn't mind the Flyers trying to get him. If he comes in at an affordable cap hit, he would help the youth of our core grow as well contribute 60 points a year playing on the first/second line with Giroux or Schenn.

I think people are putting too much into the Bruins series. Yes, he didn't play well, but really nobody on the Pens did. He still has some left I believe.

i don't understand this post. are you saying that it's ridiculous to fire the coach after one bad series? if so, i'll say this: this series was the worst since Minnesota/Anaheim in 2003. also, this wasn't their only bad series under Bylsma, it was their fourth bad series under Bylsma.

I still don't get why everyone rules out a return to Calgary? I think it makes way more sense for both parties. The Flames need some veteran leadership as they enter the rebuild, who better than Iggy? Also, what better way to ensure you get a legit shot with a contender than to get traded on deadline day? In the end, the Flames would have a great mentor in the locker room and gain assets at the trade deadline. For Iginla, he opens up more options by waiting until the trade deadline (many cup contenders this off-season will be cap crunched and Iginla won't be their first priority), and in doing so gains more assets for a team he will likely have a front office job with in 3-5 years (when they might be good again).

This move is so obvious that it would be surprising if it did not happen. The Kings were on Iggy's 3-4 team short list with the bruins and penguins. He wanted to go there but a deal could not be made.

Now that he is ufa and the kings are looking for more offence, this is so predicatble that the thread should have been over after tunga's post.

If he gets anything more than $3m then we're overpaying.

I love all the people saying he will get 3 million. He had a poor playoffs and got 12 points in 15 games. His points dried up when Byslma decided Iginla wasn't a good fit on the Pens first pp unit (which then fell apart without him nice one Dan) and Iginla then struggled from that point on (I believe he lost confidence in himself). He wasn't great these playoffs but if he is getting 3 million so is Letang for those amazing attempts at "defense". The entire team looked like **** this series but no way Iginla becomes a reclamation project.

35 year old Jarome Iginla who has been an all everything player for his entire stories career "lost confidence" because he wasn't on a top PP?

That's ridiculous.

I predict he ends up in Detroit.

They proved this year they're still a contender, have a history of bringing in vets and get the most out of them, have the cap room (especially if they buyout Samuelsson) and a reputation for treating players exceptionally well.

We heard the same sort of talk with Semin last year then he signs a 1 year 7 million deal last off-season with Carolina.

Being paid 3 million dollars is considered being a "reclamation project"?

If he gets 3 million or more that team overpaid. He should sign for 2 million bucks on a 1-2 year deal on a contender and be happy with it. His elite days are long gone, he was invisible against Boston, I get that Bylsma didn't use him properly but he can't keep up anymore. He either stays in Pitt, or goes to LA/Chicago/or any other contender for cheap. It's not about being paid big bucks anymore.

With the cap going down 6 million bucks it's going to be hard for contenders to just throw 3 million or more at a guy who's better days are behind him. I just hope this doesn't become a Jagr situation where he's changing teams every year.

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

Let's be honest according to Capgeek LA has about $11.9m to spend on 9 players for the 23 player limit. If Iginla gets $5.0m that leaves about $7.0m for 8 more players not enough money there this is why the Kings did'nt go after Iginla already because they did'nt have the cap space for him.

The entire Penguins team was invisible against the Bruins. Perhaps that speaks more about the Penguins and Bruins as teams than Iginla.

Is Iginla what he was? No. But he is still a legitimate top 6 forward and likely still 1st line talent not just some has been that is hanging onto his career by a thread. What apparently no one knew about Iginla is he has never produced on the rush except for when he used his wrist shot from the circle, he has always produced by knowing where to be once there is offensive pressure and he is still more than capable of doing that.

The kings have alot of people to resign.The only way iggy signs with the kings is if hes willing to play for around 2 million at most 2.5 Therefore i really dont see him on the kings but would be happy to be wrong.

He fits LA's style of play and the connection with Sutter helps too. But they already have Brown and Carter on the RW there, so where would he fit?

St. Louis could be a great fit since they need help scoring. But they need to re-sign Pietrangelo, Shattenkirk, Berglund and Stewart. It might not be in their budget to bring in Iggy.
