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.



http://www.capgeek.com/canucks/

if you scroll down below the goaltenders, it gives you the roster size, cap ceiling, cap payroll and projected cap space - and projects the existing contracts forward...

it also gives you the current available (pro-rated) and deadline available...

site is getting polluted with annoying pop-ups though...

what it shows = no space for Iggy unless cap hungry Feaster wants to feed on some of ours...

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.


Yeah but Calgary has Irving and Kipper, so they would never want to do that.

But I understand what you said about the prospects. If Calgary wanted to trade Iginla for young talent, they should've done it way before.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs


   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

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.

You have to look past the stats once in a while.

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

The NHL is a fixed old boys club. I've come to acceptance with that and just watch for entertainment. The 2011 & 2012 Canucks are champs in my books. Go Canucks Go!

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.

Grabovski isn't bad, but for 600K less than the Sedins? No thanks jeff


If the team is willing to pay 4.25 mil a year for Booth's empty net goal, or how about 4.0 mil for Ballard and not even bother to dress him half of the time... all of a sudden 5.5 mil isn't that much.

PLEEEEEASEEEEE GILLIS.

Perf. mentor as a PWF forward for Zack Kassian.

Desperate for a cup.. has all the tools to be a gamebreaker.... Save the PP.... gives the Canucks a much needed booster shot...

Iginla & a center before deadline day, and perhaps a new coach and this team has a chance still.

Eddie Lack might be of interest to them. He's gonna be a solid NHL goalie. They're gonna need one soon.

I think the Canucks can find a backup somewhere else if need be. And Cannata's looking like he'll be solid.

But this would be like Linden going and playing for the Flames. I don't see it happening.

I would love Iggy on this team, even tho i hate the flames i have a ton of respect for iggy but it wouldn't be worth it considering what calgary would want back.

Imagine a line with the Sedins and Iginla or Kesler with Iginla.

Not serious - but also, the "would never want to do that" part assumes two things:
1) that Kipper's not on his last legs in Calgary and Irving is a viable replacement
2) that things that Feaster does make sense.

Also, not that it changes things, but:

Kipper - .876sv %, 3.27gaa, one year left on his contract.
Irving - .883 sv%, 3.33 gaa, RFA

Regardless, if Iginla were coming this way, Calgary would have to take back salary - if they're willing to do that, there are only a few candidates on this end....

The good thing is that if Gillis really has contacted Calgary about Iginla, and New York about Gaborik, that he's finally realizing that the Sedins need an elite winger.

We've got alot of production out of Burrows, but we're seeing that production start to drop. And he could be useful to upgrade other parts of the lineup.

The Sedins could use someone to help carry the load.

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

Of course I'm going to write him off based on all of that. If we're going to add a 5.5M dollar player I would expect them to either be Selke quality defensively or score 60+ points a season.

Looking at your post it seems like you don't understand that the Cap is going down next season and we can't take back 9M in cap in the Luongo deal.

Wonder is Steamer allows him to don #12?

Also Raymond going the other way might be a possiblity. Being an Albertastanian and all. ...
