Feaster got fleeced... The fact it wasn't a first rounder with no conditionals makes this trade look meh. Iginla is worth more.

Why not? Its not like the trade will make Calgary a contender this year. Iggy is a rental player. Calgary would be stupid to not agree to the trade you propose.


We're division rivals, and GM's are very stubborn. It would never happen.

Not great value it seems. What would the Canuck equivalent be to this trade?

Once a player who has a NTC goes public with the list of teams they will accept a move to - the home team really has lost a great deal of any bargaining power. Boston would have known that if Calgary turned down the trade they would get nothing and if Iggy moves in the off season then they loose him with zero return. I am no fan of Feaster but don't see how he could have done much better given the very restrictive boundries he had to work in - An extremly short list of teams and a very short period of time to get it done. The conditional first would be considered a fair price if this was the off season and the Bruins wanted early access to try to work out a deal and this is basically what this deal is - 2 decent prospects for the short term rental of iggy and a conditional first if they sign him ...

You don't stop being a fan just because you're are losing. Fans stick through thick and thin. Not turn their back when things get tough.


From your description, that means fans will continue to pay exorbitant money to watch a team that literally does nothing to improve its club. Take out the 2004 Cinderella year and you have nothing but season after season of mediocre hockey stretching all the way back to 1989.

Fans should stick by their team, but at the same time, they should voice their displeasure with the piss poor management the Flames have had for nearly a quarter century. Truly disgusting. Even Edmonton has been better.

Feaster's made something conditional as well.

Conditional upon not announcing this deal until tomorrow.

How so? We've been a game away from the cup, back to back presidents trophies, 5+ straight division titles, etc. I get we haven't gone all the way but to mention our management in the same breath as the jokers they have running the flames is completely ludicrous.


The Canucks have done nothing to get better since their cup run. And why should they? They sellout and make tons of money. Vancouver and Calgary are no different as hockey cities really......fans in neither will tolerate any kind of significant rebuild. The Flames have needed to do that for several years and the Canucks are getting to the point where they will have to.

Wasn't meant to sound like fans shouldn't voice displeasure. I'm all for it but you stay a fan.

So what's the condition? Do they get a 2nd round pick (instead of a 1st) if he doesn't resign in Boston?

this. It's not like 20+ team were in the running. The list was small and Calgary got what they could get.

Gonna be weird seeing Iggy in a Bruins uniform, but whatever, he deserves a legit shot at the cup.

This doesn't make any sense to me. They aren't getting anything back that they can build around. IMO Bartkowski will be a top 6 d-man and Khoklachev will be a undersized 2nd liner AT BEST. The best part is the first rounder which they might not even get...

since when is boston winning another cup all of a sudden? iggy's an established veteran presence, but you can't honestly think whatever team he'd move to would be a lock for a cup win
