    You think you're PO'd about Iginla - Check out this guy

    Entertaining read. A good rant. As bummed as I am that the Bs didn't get Iginla, it could be worse, you could be a Flames fan.

    I'd forgotten about the O'Reilly offer-sheet thing.  It's still kind of shocking Feaster wasn't fired right then and there.

    no big deal not getting iginla.  u would have had him for a month or 2 and that was it.

    if they had to give up a goalie -no deal.

    please admit rask not doing job. gives up to many rebounds, and out of position a lot.  i dont see him lasting many years with bruins.

    I said it before - dez, I directed it at you so back me up - Calgary will be better for having cut ties with Iginla.  But fans never see that.

    I agree with this, but it still seems like a pretty modest return on the trade.  Feaster looks kind of silly stating that it would take a roster player, plus prospect, plus high pick...and then settling for a lot less (two average college prospects and a very low 1st round pick).  It's very possible that Iginla was traded for three guys who may never play in the NHL, and even in a good scenario they won't play in the NHL soon.  I was surprised he couldn't get more.

    Turns out that move was brilliant. O'Reilly was never cooing to Calgary, but Feaster screwed Colorado for years to come With that contrat.

    And if Colorado hadn't matched he would have lost two firsts for nothing. Nothing brilliant about that.

     Wow, you've got that whole thing backwards in your mind.  Read up on it.

    What's the opposite of brilliant?

    True all around. Time will make it so.
