Iginla to Philly

Far fetched, I know, but Iginla would put that team over the top.

I'm not saying this will happen, but what would it take IYO?

Carter + Leighton + Picks/Prospects + Salary to even it out.

Will not happen. Homer is looking to add without subtracting from current roster. Carcillo and walker are the only two who are expendable yet noone will want them. I love iggy, and him on jvr/richie line is down right filthy. However, not even a thought. Unless your taking the Pronger deal( 2 firsts, bartulis and welwood/carcillo/legin).

Not taking on that conract.

Flyers are looking for a complimentary 2nd/3rd line winger with Stanley Cup winnng experience .... think Langenbrunner. Think $2-4 million, and ideally a free agent at seasons end.

Iginla's cap hit is problematic for a team like Philly...they would almost be forced to unload Carter just to make this trade happend, which I assume, are not really interested in.

I can't think of a win-win trade solution between Calgary and Philly with Iginla involved.

Dude, If they want Carter it will cost them alot more than just Iggy. The Flyers assistant GM John Paddock was just on NHL Live and he said the only thing the Flyers are looking at right now is to get "Deeper not better" at forward. They do not want or need to make any big moves. Now do not get me wrong. I like Iggy, but he is on the wrong side of 30 for me

They'd be crazy to target Mikko Koivu.

I can see them making an offer for Chris Kelly.

Pre-lockout, a deal for Iginla to put a team like the Flyers over the top would make sense. Not in a hard cap world.

The #1 team in the NHL still needs to be "put over the top."

Amazing.

You could make the argument that Vancouver is better. Pts are tied as of this morning

The whole Western conference is superior really, making Vancouver's schedule more difficult.

Iginla would NOT put them over the top, and that's to take nothing away from Iginla...they Flyers are solid in the top-6 forward spot.

For what Calgary would want in return, I don't see how it puts the team over the top.

If they could add him without subtracting pieces, you have yourself a valid point.

If you go by tie breaker, I believe Philly has it with more wins than Van.

Either way, I'm not commenting on who is the best in the league. It's a stupid argument. The fact that the Flyers would dismantle what is obviously working for an aging star is an insane thought.

I'd love to have Iginla. Not right now, it would dismantle the team as all are saying. Depth is key.

I don't see how Iginla would work for Philly, given the high-priced talent at forward they already have locked up.

An offer around JVR would probably get Feaster listening. The Flyers could make a much better offer than the other rumored teams interested in Iggy, like Montreal or NYR.

Unlike those other rumored teams interested in Iginla, the Flyers have no reason or need to acquire Iginla. When it comes down to straight up salary constraints because of the cap, acquiring Iginla might actually make them a worse team instead of a better one.

Not going to happen. Iginla does not fit into the Flyers team makeup. Acquiring him would require the Flyers to completely retool their team, which at this point would be idiotic.
