    Iginla

    Its no secret Iginla will be leaving the flames and I know he's pretty old but he's still a really good player. And it wouldn't take a lot to get him. Would love to see iggy in a b's uniform.

    Re: Iginla

    Now we are really complete as the Bruins forum now has a Nash, Parise and now an Iginla thread going at the same time. By the way I would love the to see Iginla in a Bruins uniform. The money Jerome produces for that franchise Apparel, tickets etc. suggests he stays especially the cost to whomever comes calling.

    Re: Iginla

    lol, yes, the triumvirate of usual off-the-wall trade speculation targets is now complete. The one thing I'll say about Iginla is that he is a pending UFA, so he might be traded and he wouldn't handicap the Bruins long-term and he might not require too much going back. But make no mistake, the Flames will want something back. Something decent. I would explore the Iginla option if Horton's future was in doubt. I might also explore it if Thomas was dealt for prospects and cap space that could be used on Iginla. Of course, there as Sandog says, there is a good chance he goes nowhere.

    Re: Iginla

    There is also a good chance he gets moved. After the season ended he said himself he doesn't want to be part of a rebuilding team. It could happen and would seem far more realestic then landing a Rick Nash

    He sure fits the Bruins player mold; gritty, hard working and will drop the gloves in a minute.

    Flames won't let the face of their franchise go for peanuts....

    whether Horton's good to go or not, B'S have to upgrade offense prior to puck being dropped next season....

    Totally agree with you on that. Maybe a bobby Ryan thread will be the next one. But I will let someone else start that

    tbone, not saying i'm not interested in Iggy but that he won't be given away and that there'll be suitors....

    Ryan would be huge pickup....

    Stupid thread # 2 out of two opened.

    Wouldnt take much to get him? He is the face of that franchise. If I dont care how bad they are, what his age is they would want way more than he's worth for the simple fact he is worth more to them than anyone else.

    My point is it would take a lot less to get him as oposed to Nash. Now I don't think it's really a stupid thread. I think everyone agrees this team needs a top 6 forward. So if it's stupid then don't respond. Iginla has made it clear he wants to win and that's not happening anytime in Calgary. So why couldn't the b's make a pitch for him. Or is that stupid.

    I think you'd have to offer two first rounders to even get the Flames to pick up the phone, and that likely wouldn't be close to enough to get it done.

    Yeah but he wouldn't go well with the bigoted tweeters out there that have a problem with people of color.

    But seriously, even at his age which will be 35/36 next season, he would be a good fit if the price wasn't too steep to acquire him.

    Re: Iginla

    Sorry, I don't understand why the Bruins need a top 6 forward.  And even if I accept the premise that they need a top six forward, it would have something to do with the fact that they couldn't get a sustained attack going against a put them to sleep defense.  How is a guy who gets points but who hasn't been able to rev up his team's engine for what, five straight years, going to be the answer?

    I think it's stupid because it would take a ton to get him. You'd have to overpay to get him. Yes, he's up there in age, but like i said he's the face of their franchise, and they will not deal him for picks or prospects, they'd also want a proven player like Lucic. He's a hell of a player but the price would be way too steep.

    Re: Iginla

    Everybody from Boston had better be nice to Calagary next year.  He's going no where soon.  If it looks like the Flames are not going to make the playoffs next year, Iggy will get a golden parachute a la Bourque.  He'll go for dick, as a rental, to a cup favorite(and maybe back to Calagary in the fall).  You don't build around Iggy, but if you can get him for peanuts for a playoff run, .... yipeee.
    If somebody really wants this guy, why not wait 6 months and get him for nothing.  He shouldn't garner much via trade, unless there's an extension of a year or two at reasonable money that goes with him.

    How about Jay Bouwmester (spelling)...

    Nice to speculate but I don't see anything huge this off season. Teams all ready good, just some depth moves probably. Gotta figure Hamilton, Caron, and Maybe Sauve or Spooner might find their way into the lineup.

    dunno what everyone is talking about here..... Inginla would be a PERFECT bruin. EXACTLY what the doctor ordered for a team challenging for a stanley cup, needing goal scoring, and ESPECIALLY considering I want Krejci outta here and Seguin @ center-ice. (creating a vacancy @ wing)

    you are all smoking something.

       I think, a lot of people believe (myself included) that SEGUIN is ready to assume the #1 center position.
    That moves KREJCI to the 3rd line, or out-of-town.
    With the status of HORTON, uncertain, and PEVERLEY better suited for 3rd line duty, the bruins will need a top 2 RW (likely obtained in a KREJCI trade).

    Re: Iginla

    Don't expect Nash, Parise, or Iginla, although some of these thoughts are interesting. Agree with Biggskye that Peverly is best suited for the 3rd line. Will Horton come back is the biggest question, and only a kreji trade would move Seguin to center ice. If Kreji stays, and Horton does not come back, my wish list would send Timmy to Tampa Bay for St. louis [ until Spooner is ready] plus Nate Thompson to center a new 4th line with Caron and Hendrickson.

    I don't know what he would cost, and I dont know if the deal would make sense from a budget angle, but I'd absolutely love what Iginla could bring to the Bruins.

    Think leadership and character of Recchi, except with a ton of toughness, skill and offensive talent left.
