Trying to move on from the Iginla fiasco, thinking about the offer he made and what chips he really has to use. Trying to break this out, to see what he might be in position to use to help this team.
Good: Spooner, Subban, Khokhlachev, Camara & Svedberg
Fair: Knight, Krug, Griffith, Payne, Grzelcyk & Ferlin
2013 and beyond...don't think he has traded any away or acquired any additional
Good space for 2012-13, but tight for next year
Guys like Caron or better could possibly be moved
It's been said before, but players with expiring contracts seem like the best fit for the team, but the trick is what would he be willing to part with for a rental not named Iginla? I thought Khokhlachev and a 1st rounder was a pretty steep price to pay for a rental, so the fact that the deal ultimately fell apart might not have been the worst thing in the world. Not sure if I am missing any assets, please weigh in if I did.
