I doubt we'll get Doan either.

The sooner we accept the team for what we have the sooner we'll all stop going crazy.

If something does change - then we'll be pleasantly suprised.

I will give Iginla credit for scoring my favourite assist of all-time (in Vancouver, even), but I'd bet Vancouver (& Edmonton) are among his least preferred trade destinations based on past rivalries.

I just can't see Iginla coming here after being a Flame for so long lol, but who knows.

And just cause he's canadian doesn't mean he'll want to play for a canadian team, Nash didn't

Nash is as american as a canadian can get! he sucks

really wouldn't mind it if Doan signed here, I think with someone with those leadership credentials can really help keep the team in line and focused on winning rather than going back to stupid diving and complaining again. As well, he brings size, hitting, skill, play making to the 2nd line and I doubt that he would be one (as an ex-captain) to disrupt locker room chemistry but he can step in and do some leading to support Hank.

Really hope that MG can pull out the stops during his visit in the Canucks' facilities and reel in this big fish.

Hank aint much of a Captain

But are the chances not that good that we can land Iginla via trade or free agency? I don't see Iginla being the player that is just going to look at the money and go to a big market team for a chance to win. I think Iginla will want to play for a Canadian team. I don't see him going to a team like Philly, Pitts, Detroit or NY.


IF he does decide to finally leave Cow Town, you're dreaming if you think he'd pass on the chance to play next to Sidney. He got a taste of it in 2010 (who assisted Sid's Golden Goal?), remember? Only a fool wouldn't want the opportunity to go out a winner by playing with that club and for that coach. ESPECIALLY if Philly gets Doan, I wouldn't be surprised at all to see him in Pittsburgh.

You can bet they'll come after him hard, for sure.

He is for those who think being a fan favourite and nice guy who's "good in the community" off the ice is more important than being a leader by example both on the ice and in the room.

Unfortunately, there's no one else on the current roster who it can be argued would make a better one.

both would be a great addition. But I doubt it is going to happen.
it is a matter of cost vs profit. I think our GM is playing the business game, and not willing to spend too much to get he needs.... profit!!! Who care about cup, when you are making money...


Gillis has pretty well spent right up to the salary cap (leaving a bit of wiggle room as any smart GM does) every year he's been a GM. What you are saying is undeniably baseless and incorrect.

Its not like Gillis would ever say..."sorry, we don't want you Shane, we might have a chance at Iginla next year".

Sure having Iginla would be great, but I highly doubt he'd screw the flames over by going to their division rivals if he had a choice.

I agree, but we can always dream .

Well the thread was about waiting until next year when Iginla is a UFA, not trading Calgary for him now. So theoretically we wouldn't be giving Calgary anything if we nabbed Iginla as a UFA. Still never going to happen, but yeah.

Yeah - I thought about that later - what I meant was, what we are willing to trade isn't what the Flames need - IE - Luongo. ;)

unfortunately Iginla hates the players on the Canucks with a passion , he told me himself he would never want to play with them and if he had to leave Calgary his first choice would be New York.

so Doan please. although i like Iggy.

Calgary has ruined Iginla unfortunately. He will retire there probably and the Flames are so dumb, they would rather see Iggy retire then win. They will be in 9th place again at the trade deadline, not trade him, and they will finish in 10th, 3 points out of a playoff spot.
