Will Flames put Iginla on trading block?

So when does Calgary general manager Jay Feaster place Jarome Iginla for sale?

And if that were to happen, would Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren grab Iginla before Boston’s Peter Chiarelli?

Both these clubs are looking for help on the wing.

Truth is, however, the Bruins are in far better shape to make a deep playoff run than the Flyers, who increasingly appear to be a “bubble team” that may miss the playoffs.

Look at it this way. On Thursday morning, the Flyers and three other clubs had 17 points – the same as the eighth-seeded Tampa Bay Lightning.

Yet the biggest difference was that every one of those other teams had played at least three less games. That’s six possible points – eight in the case of Carolina – sitting there the Flyers can’t get.

That is what is so precarious about the Flyers’ situation. They’ve played so many games where they’ve failed to snatch up easy points thrown at them, and now have to hope that teams ahead of them in the standings with games in hand stumble.

That’s asking a lot given all games are within the conference so every time you lose a point, someone else is gaining what you lost.

Which brings us back to the Flames, who might become “sellers” very shortly in the Western Conference.

    The only way and I mean only way Iggy pop is traded is if he approaches them to go to a contender for a shot at a cup. And if he does expect a Tkachuk type situation where he resigns in the offseason.

    I don’t like the new NHL realignment.

      if they have it 1v16, 2v15, etc then it is a perfect time to get all the Eastern Timezone teams into the Eastern Conference. Maybe just set it up where the top 2 of each division is given home ice advantage for the first round.

    Eric Cole for Michael Ryder. wow. I don’t think Cole and Therrien got along.

    Ryder is someone Therrien knows well though.

    hmm, maybe they trade Desharnais for Ribiero next lol

    Would Iginla fit in perfectly with Randy Carlyle’s style of hockey?
