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?

Miller is not on our list. It's Lack as our #1. There is no reason we would have traded both Schnieder and Luongo if we never intended to give Lack the #1 starting job.  Furthermore, the salary and term Miller is looking for is not in our favor.

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.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

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?

Yeah, but they complain that Luongos' contract is TOO long. :lol: Can't really disagree.

Luongos contract is not good...... And yes, Iginla is a rental player that may or may not re-sign, of course that lowers the value.

I think a couple things happened here.

Boston had the better package of players, but wanted to give a conditional 1st, rather than a solid 1st, whereas Shero gave lesser players (maybe, but they are largely unknown), but was willing to give up a set 1st rounder.

The lower price is also, as you mention, a consequence of Iginla not wanting to sign an extension. IN the end, I'm betting Iginla wanted to play in Pittsburgh more than in Boston and thus, Feasters hands were tied a little.

no they pens take on what is left of Iginla's cap hit for the rest of this year. On JUly 1st, his contract expires.

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.

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

Not sure I would trust anything a Bruins GM says......or any Bruin for that matter.

He got a decent return for a winger well past his elite years who is not going to resign with the Pens and will likely return to calgary in the summer. They will almost certainly get a top three pick now and could package the pens first rounder with a second rounder and move up significantly with their second first round pick. Plus they get two prospects that, really, no one knows much about........they could easily pan out to be very good players for the Flames. I think Feaster did better than he's getting credit for.

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."

Oilers got more for Penner. What a failure by the incompetent flames ownership to wait until Iginla had the least trade value.

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).

It was iginlas choice... "No Movement Clause". Iggy wanted to play in Pittsburgh, his list was to accommodate the flames so they could have options in case Pittsburgh fell through.

Flames GM preferred Boston's package but that means nothing when iggy says no

“Since the beginning of recorded history, which is defined by the invention of writing by the Sumerians around 6,000 years ago, historians have cataloged over 3700 supernatural beings, of which 2870 can be considered deities.

So next time someone tells me they believe in God, I’ll say “Oh which one? Zeus? Hades? Jupiter? Mars? Odin? Thor? Krishna? Vishnu? Ra?…” If they say “Just God. I only believe in the one God,”

I’ll point out that they are nearly as atheistic as me.I don’t believe in 2,870 gods, and they don’t believe in 2,869.”

I heard he had 4 teams. Now we have conflicting information here.

EVERYONE thinks Flames got hosed. Including Flames fans

Your the only one defending the return of the trade which is quite sad. At least Canucks fans are not afraid to admit bad moves Gillis makes.
