Could Iginla go to the Capitals?

The rumor is that the Caps and Flames have discussed the possibility of a swap of Iginla for Semin…in actuality they have been discussing this on and off for two and three quarter years (to my best estimate)

Now however it is gaining some major momentum…

The details I have heard most often are…Alex Semin, Braden Holtby and 2 picks for Jarome Iginla, Chris Butler and a prospect…(some say Howse, a few have said the Caps want Brodie (of course they do!)

What I do know is this…there is a TON of smoke behind this rumor, but obviously it goes along with Iginla whenever his name is brought up…There are also a great amount of people out there who tell me Calgary is playing this as close to the vest as ever…especially regarding whether or not Iginla wants to go or Calgary wants him to go…

I will have more on this in the coming days for sure…This is one of those deals which would more than likely happen sooner than later, but until the deadline passes will definitely remain as a contingency plan or “keeping our options open” type of rumor…But again, in this case I see this either happening or not by mid-January.

And this will likely not be the only Semin or Iginla rumors that surface as both the Caps and Flames attempt to get full value…
