      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.

[Trade] Iginla to Pittsburgh

Recommended Posts

What's funny is Eckland's "rumor" about a player previously considered untrade-able being involved in an East/West trade pretty much hits the mark. Not that I'm defending, but he did drop that nugget fairly pre-emptively.

Is it a lucky guess? Who knows?

Seems that Pittsburg and Boston both really wanted iggy. Is the return they got all Calgary could really get? Seems like they should have got more then again maybe a lesson to teams to up the bids if you want to get the player.

This is GOOD for any potential Luongo trade considering Lu is locked in a good long term contract and iggy is set to expire his soon. Thats what lowered the value here. Also we have been dangling our bait much longer.

So does part of Iggy's cap stay with the flames?

And is it a fixed percent of cap the pens have to use up then?

If GMPC actually was told he was getting Iginla and Feaster turned around & traded him to Pitts that makes him an even worse GM. I'm sure the Avs GM doesn't love him because of the RO'R, and now an eastern conference GM won't want to deal with him.

Not only did he not get enough for an elite winger, he ruined a relation in doing so...

I'd be pissed if I cared about the Flames.

Many believed on Wednesday night that the Boston Bruins had completed the acquisition of Jarome Iginla - including the Boston Bruins.

In a rare move, general manager Peter Chiarelli held a news conference on Thursday afternoon explaining the process of how the deal for the much-coveted Flames captain came together and fell apart.

"We made a firm offer two days ago and were told at Noon yesterday (Wednesday) that we'd won the Jarome Iginla sweepstakes so to speak," Chiarelli told reporters. "We believed that we had a deal."

The Bruins' offer for Iginla's services was believed to be defenceman Matt Bartkowski, forward Alex Khokhlachev and a first-round pick conditional on Iginla re-signing with the Bruins. Chiarelli even went so far as to scratch both players from their Boston and Providence lineups in anticipation.

But as the day went on, Chiarelli and the Bruins did not hear back from the Flames as both teams prepared for their respective games against the Montreal Canadiens and Colorado Avalanche.

"As the time went on, doubt started to grow," he explained. "You make efforts to call, but when nothing gets returned, you know something's going on."

The Bruins GM said he then received a call from the Flames at about 11:45pm et on Wednesday night saying that it was the "player's choice" and that Iginla was going to be dealt to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Chiarelli added that despite losing out on Iginla last-minute, the team was still looking to make improvements ahead of next Wednesday's trade deadline. "There's players out there," he said. We're in on players. You get back on your horse, you go out there and you find some more players."

Iggy chose the Pens with his NMC. Of course Feaster and the owners will honor the most important player in this organization

Pens arguably paid more for Morrow then for Iggy.

Oh to be a fly on the wall, well, anywhere in Beantown this morning :lol: . Might have to go check out their forums for a laugh. Gotta say the last few days have been exciting even if GMMG hasn't been a part of it (yet).

Jay Feaster trolling the Bruins. He must have been still bitter about the Ryan O'Rielly offer sheet and wanted to make a fool out of another team
