Few Iginla Question's

Hey

Just wondering, has there been any talk on extending Iginla's contract? Would it be a one year extension, or a multi-year deal?

Am I right assuming, if Iginla is not qualified, he would be UFA this summer?

If he is not to be qualified, would he be moved at the deadline, regardless of playoff position?

Finally, if he is moved, what can you expect in return from the following teams:

- TOR
- OTT
- PHI

I'm not exactly up to date on the Flames' money situation or Iginla's contract for that matter, but plain and simple, as a huge fan of this guy, I think anyone would be crazy not to try and extend his contract. As for trading him, I believe there would definetely be a lot of interest but it would come down to giving up the necessary prospects/picks + adding salary, which most teams are against doing right now. If anything, you could always let him walk, in which case after the new CBA (provided there is one lol), my Jackets could sign him . J/K guys, Iginla is too good to let go though. I hope you can find a way to keep him.

DArryl Sutter has already gone on the record to the Calgary media that he has full intentions of qualifying Iginla before July and then trying to work out a long term deal over the summer.

If Sutter says he is staying in Calgary, he is.

For sure Flames make qualifying offer for him. This is best season for years so it is best to keep the team as much unchanged as possible. Not changing any important players (eg. Kiprusoff, Iginla, Donovan, Regehr) or young guns (eg. Lombardi, Leopold)

CBA fallout will make it extremely unlikely that Iginla would make more than his $7 million base salary at any point in the future anyway.

Iggy scored 52 two years ago. He would might have topped 40 last year had Klee not injured him with a cheapshot, and Iggy has a good shot at 40+ and another Richard trophy this year.

Some didnt like this contract because they felt it was too much for a "one year wonder." Well, he aint a one year wonder anymore. The team needs to hold onto him.

if he were moved, which is unlikely, the asking price went up about 50 % the last month. perhaps outside of st. louis the hottest player in the league.

ottawa: havlat,spezza and volchenkov

toronto: not enough young talent

philly: gagne, richards and johnsson

Are you serious? Toronto has tons of young talent. Judging by the names you listed, you're only looking at the young talent already in the NHL. Are you forgetting Stajan, Kaberle, etc., plus all the prospects in their system?

None of which are particularaly enticing in an Iginla deal.

You've got to be kidding me. You're probably one of the only people to think this too. I guess that's why fans aren't GMs.

No, I think there are a lot of people that think that. I didnt say that they werent good prospects, just that they arent enticing in a trade for Iginla. Stajan and Kaberle and a couple of your overhyped draft picks wont come close to replacing an MVP level talent.

On the contrary, you are probably one of the only people to think the Leafs have good young prospects.

At both the NHL level, and in their system, the Leafs are clearly in the bottom tier of the NHL in terms of prospects.

Nobody is salivating at the likes of Stajan, Wellwood, Coliacovo, Sedin, Steen, etc.

They are a decent group of mid-range guys, but harldy in the class of elite prospects. The Leafs system is definetly near the bottom of the league.

I never understood how people can call a guy who has potted over 25 goals and 50 points for the last 6 years "a one year wonder"
So many said he'll never get another sniff of the richard trophy. He's looking alot like that hot streak a couple year ago. I was hoping he'd be doing that in the playoffs!

Point taken to a certain extent but what you would have to realize is that if he were to ever be traded, it would be because they knew they couldn't resign. So in a sense, they wouldn't be trying to replace an MVP.......they would be trying to get the best they could for him. This may drive some teams to back away in hopes that maybe they could just sign him as a free agent rather than giving up some of their better prospects. I will admit though that if Columbus owned Iggy, I wouldn't trade him for Kaberle and Stajan either. Simply put though, if I got both of those guys and say a 1st or 2nd round pick, I wouldn't complain TOO much.

For the last time, there shalt be NO trading of Jarome Iginla. No.

This team is finally where we wanted it to be for the last 6 years. We have the building blocks in place. We have finally have a good goaltender, a superstar, a good defense core that's young (although we could stand to add a derek morris type or a power play specialist), good grinders, good experienced guys, and good young forwards (Lombardi, saprykin, kobasew). This team is really on the right track and I'm excited to see it there!!!!

GO FLAMES GO

Yeah, and it's just great that once we've turned the corner we hit a bloody lockout/strike. Now why couldn't that happen when we sucked?

I would. Kaberle adds nothing we dont already get from Leopold. Stajan is alright, but not exactly top end talent, and your draft picks arent that valuable.

The Flames could very, very easily get a significantly better offer than the best Toronto could do.

You just stated what I was saying all along.......the whole time I was talking about what TORONTO could do, not another team. Hell, I know you could get a lot more than that out of another team. But, let's just end all this arguing by simply stating that Iginla will be going nowhere........I know it, you know it. He's a franchise player that brings so much to your team, and the Flames know this, therefore he will be wearing a Calgary jersey for a very long time. Feel proud that you have him, I envy you.

Well I am glad you finally agreed with what I was saying all along: Toronto has nothing that is enticing in an Iginla deal.

Not sure why you were arguing against that comment when you agreed all along...
