      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

[Rumour] Canucks in on Iginla ?

Recommended Posts

Lol. MG trading away the farm to the Flames for a player we can sign for free in the off season? I will burn my Canucks Jersey if this happens. Unless of course its Ballard and Booth going the other way, but Feaster isn't that dumb.

He said that there are rumours that Iginla has given a list a 5 teams.... and the Canucks were a rumoured to be on that list.

Not that the Canucks were interested - per say.

So in your dream we have a small, soft third line center who is making 5.5M per year and only as 11 points on the season.

That's called a nightmare.

Grabovski's been in the dog house lately but when he's on his game he is very good. Reading your post it looks like you just looked at his stats, size and cap hit and decided to write him off

Anyone have a good grasp on how much room we have available towards the cap?

Capgeek is hard to use to figure this out since they made some changes or I just havent figured it out yet.

Iggy in Van would make both teams uneasy.

Lol are you kidding me - IF the Canucks had a shot at Iggy for a playoff run I'd do it - fact is he'll end back up in Calgary next year so as a rental I think he'd be a great fit - imagine him on a line with the Sedins.

That said no way in hell do I see Calgary doing that.

Hmmm. I don't regard Mac as a Canucks source, but for fun...

Luo, Ebbett.

Iginla, Backlund.

If Calgary wants to rent Iginla this way, imo it would have to be for veterans - or forget it - hands off the prospects.

It's too late for that Feaster.

People here who don't want iggy are ABSOLUTELY NUTS and obviously haven't watched him play this year.

We won't get him but it would be amazing if we did. He's been on fire this year and is hitting, battling, fighting even and scoring. This guy would be fantastic on our team.

Again. 99% chance it won't happen

Awesome but it wont work out. Flames will want the farm if teams want to pry their captain and all star away from them. And the Canucks don't have the assets to trade for Iginla unless our 1st makes a big difference to them.

Plus I highly doubt MG trades for Iginla unless there is some assurance he would re-sign with the Canucks.

LOL who am I kidding this isn't happening.

First Sundin, now Iginla? :lol:

We just love pissing off our haters.

As for the Flames not trading with divisional rivals, I don't see that being the case. It's not like it would come back to bite them since Iggy would only be a rental. Canucks can't afford to re-sign him.

As for how much it would cost. I would imagine it would be something like Lack, Connauton, and a 1st or 2nd. The Flames need to start planning for a Kipper successor, and could always use more D prospects.
