Here are some of the suggestions from those threads:
Potential Iginla Trades
To Detroit Red Wings : Jarome Iginla
To Calgary Flames : 2012 first round draft pick, Tomas Tatar, Xavier Ouellet
To the Blues: Iginla, 14th overall pick, Irving
To the Flames: Halak, Rattie, and Oshie.
(also from backburner)
Ty Rattie and a top six (Berglund), or a first from St. Louis
Mark Stone and a first from the Sens OR
Dougie Hamilton and Krejci, or a first from the Bruins
(via Kevin R)
To Pittsburgh: Iggy, Backlund and Butler + 2012 3rd pick.
To Calgary: J Staal, roster player(salary back), 2012 1st rounder
To Bruins: Iggy, 2012 3rd rounder
To Calgary: Kriejci, 2012 1st rounder, 2012 2nd rounder
smellofvictory combined the two with this –
Chicago (for Iginla + Kiprusoff): Frolik + Crawford + McNeill + Saad
Potential Kiprusoff Trades
Option 1: Kipper (CGY) for (TOR) Schenn, Kadri, Reimer
Option 2: Kipper, Butler (CGY for (TOR) Gardiner, Komisarek, Kadri, 1st
Option 3: Kipper, Butler (CGY) for (CHI) Hjalmarsson, Saad, Frolik
Option 4: Kipper, Butler (CGY) for (CHI) Leddy, Crawford, Saad Option 3: Kipper (CGY) for (CHI) Olsen, McNeil, Frolik, Crawford
(danglesnipecelly was less ambitious)
Kipper and our 1st to TOR for Colborne and their 1st
Kipper to CHI for Bolland and a 2nd
Kiprusoff to Toronto for 2012 2nd round pick from Toronto and Carter Ashton
Kiprusoff to Chicago for Crawford and McNeil
Option 1: Kiprusoff + TJ Brodie to NJ — Andy Green & Adam Henrique to Calgary.
Option 2: Kiprusoff + #13 2012 pick to NY Islanders — Mark Streit + #4 pick in 2012 draft
Chicago: Kiprusoff for Frolik and a 1st
Tampa Bay: Kiprusoff and a 3rd for a 1st and a 2nd
New Jersey: Kiprusoff for Jon Merrill
It was interesting to see how often Chicago cropped up in both scenarios. Other popular options were Pittsburgh and St. Louis for Iginla and Toronto and New Jersey for Kipper. The potential returns varied quite drastically, although almost everyone agrees the baseline return should be a top prospect or first round pick + a roster player for each.
I consider the Blues and Blue Jackets high level targets for the Flames when it comes to dealing Iginla and Kipper this year, although clubs like Chicago and Toronto make a lot of sense as well. The Blues are a good fit because they are one of the best teams in the West, have a lot of high-end young players and prospects (both of which the Flames need) but nobody like Iginla on the roster – an established vet who can still produce at a decent rate.
As for the Blue Jackets, it’s obvious their greatest need is goaltending. In addition, Howson has proven the last year or so that he is desperate to do anything to get the team out of basement and willing to make big, headline-grabbing moves to that end. Trading a desperate man something he really needs is a good way to get a big return. If he can’t land Luongo, his best bet is Kipper (since I can’t see Harding or Vokoun choosing to sign there). A decent roster player + their first rounder this year for Kipper + Flames first rounder seems plausible to me.
In aggregate, if Calgary could get two roster players, a high-end prospect and a top-10 pick for Iginla, Kipper and the Flames own 14th overall pick…would you do it? Should Feaster if that is at all possible this summer?
- Should the Flames try to trade anty other major roster players? Bouwmeester for instance.
- Who are you starting to look at for the Flames first round pick this June?
- If you don’t like Troy Ward as a pontential Brent Sutter replacement, who woould you prefer?
- How will you react if the Flames simply re-sign their pending free agents and go with status quo?
