On the trade board people are saying Subban, pacioretty, Eller and a 1st. Pretty hilarious.

and he has 2 years remaining.

Not happening.
um Spezza, Alfie, Kovy and Gonchar are what 26 million for 4. so 30 for 5 is reasonable. (this isn't saying I want it to happen but there are teams in similar spots)

And Subban is the total package on D, 10 years younger, and about 7 million dollars cheaper, what's your point.

After that a first is mandatory for a young team and some young(ish) talent like Weber and Akost.

So either Eller + 1st + Weber + AKost for Iggy

Or to include a cap dump
Eller + 1st + Spacek + AKost for Iggy and Pardy/Staios

I'm not really up to date on Pardy but he is on a cheep deal and Staios is pretty gritty and has an expiring contract.
No way re ELLER. That kid has big second line center with vision and compete written all over him.

Gomez is a salary dump, gimme a break.

Subban alone is too much for Iginla.

Half half. In our situation on D, yes it is. I love Subban, but Iginla really is a stud and is not a rental. I'd certainly listen to the offer if I were a GM, would I do it? I don't know, but it's closer than people make it sound!

I'm just happy we now have a GM that actually picks up the phone between October and May.

Next year Subban is going to be even stronger. *cue Ribeiro pic* Iginla will not be worth him anymore.

Iginla is a special player. It's unseen if Subban will EVER be as good as iginla is, in their respective positions of course. I'm not putting down Subban as I think he will be a stud for us but merely suggesting Iginla is proven and still an elite player.

Knowing you'd have to trade so many prospects to get him, I wouldn't do it.

Now if it was AK + PICK + PROSPECT then yeah.. I'd do it.

Either way, the Flames won't deal him.

I'm just saying, if Subby progresses like he is supposed to, and trains like he does every offseason, then it's scary to think about the kind of season he can put up next year. And we desperately need him on defense, he will be better than Markov during his prime and I'll take a bet that he will be less injured (not an intentional shot at Markov but it's true, Subban will never get hit in that manner). Basically, what Subban provides for our team is the ability to chose not to re-sign Markov and add a player like Iginla, not trade him for it.

Oh I agree, if he keeps working, we have a special player on our hands. At same time, I'd still keep markov regardless. Elite D-core right there.

If Kostitsyn goes the other way along with some other pieces and our 1st then I'm all for it.

I can't believe how uch you guys are down playing a Jarome Iginla ! He is top 5 in my books ! You don't just get a 33 year old Iginla for peanuts and cracker jacks.

Yeah, I was just suggesting if we dicide to get Iginla, Markov would probably not be re-signed

Otherwise, having an elite D (one of the best in the east?) sounds good

Iginla is turning 34 this summer. How many more years of hockey does he have? His speed has dropped considerably already.

Even if Subban does not improve from his rookie season (which is ridiculous to assume), he's a 40 point d-man who is very good in his own end... and he's many years away from being an RFA let alone UFA.

To put things in perspective, Markov as a rookie was pacing 30 points. So, in reality, PK getting 50 or 60 in less than 5 years is extremely likely... he should be a top 10 D man in the league in a few years time (maybe as early as next year), imo

Strickland is a solid source, hes legit, and if he says that I believe it.

I would prefer Iginla or Regher only if we can make a solid deal that wouldn't mortgage our future. IMO we aren't ready for a cup with or without Iggy.

Also the Habs are apparently interested in Arnott according to NY Post so we can't get both. Something is fishy here.

NY Post (Larry Brooks) - completely unreliable.

Strickland has a good track record with rumors involving the St.Louis Blues. Other teams, not so much..

I think a reasonable offer might be Jacques Martin straight up for Iggy! If that doesn't work, we reoffer martin packaged with Pyatt and "he's big he's bald, he's Alex Auld" and a 5th rounder for Iggy, Sutter and a 1st rounder. And if that doesn't satisfy them Gauthier picks up the phone and says, "go to hell!"

PG is testing the waters, it's normal that it sounds fishy.
