Price for Bouwmeester is high

Perhaps the biggest name left on the trade market is Jay Bouwmeester.

That’s if he is indeed dealt.

The Calgary Flames don’t have to necessarily move him — he’s got one more year left on his deal (at $6.6 million), so he’s not a pending unrestricted free agent forcing the NHL club to seek immediate asset return.

Minute-munching ironman defenceman the exact type of player that is highly sought after at trade deadlines

While debate rages over the return on the Jarome Iginla trade, the Calgary Flames are quietly going about dealing another asset that should net them a bigger prize.

Jay Bouwmeester will likely never win a Norris Trophy. No one will mistake the lanky blueliner for a mean cuss like Scott Stevens or Chris Pronger. He is not a master orator like Michael Cammalleri or Alex Tanguay.

But make no mistake: a swift-skating, puck-moving defenceman is one hot commodity on the market with just six days to the trade deadline.

Do you think that the Flames got a good return for Iginla?

Deal falls through with Boston – Iginla Traded to Pittsburgh

Iginla to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for college prospects Kenneth Agostino and Ben Hanowski as well as Pittsburgh’s 2013 first-round draft pick.

Matt Bartkowski, prospect Alexander Khokhlachev, and a first-round draft pick for Iginla?

With speculation that Iginla could be headed to the Boston Bruins, McKenzie added that defenceman Matt Bartkowski, prospect Alexander Khokhlachev, and a first-round draft pick could be headed to Calgary in return.

Iginla trade just about to happen?

Iginla has been pulled from the lineup for tonights Flames game and Bob McKenzie from TSN is reporting that Jordan Caron and Matt Bartkowski were perhaps on way out.

Looks like the Iginla deal to the Bruins is right on the verge of happening.



Here’s the latest on the Jarome Iginla trade front:

-Calgary GM Jay Feaster is asking for goaltender Malcolm Subban to be part of any package from Boston. Boston GM Peter Chiarelli flatly refuses to include Subban in any package.

Players that the Flames could try to pry out of Boston for Iginla

What kind of package it takes to land Iginla remains to be seen, but with longtime backstop Miikka Kiprusoff nearing the end, the Flames would certainly have keen interest in the B’s top goalie prospect, Malcolm Subban. Other trade bait could include forwards Alexander Khokhlachev and Ryan Spooner, and defensemen Matt Bartkowski, Torey Krug and David Warsofsky.

Bruins continue to look for help

Bruins need help

Even before the Bruins lost two regulars — Chris Kelly (broken foot) and Adam McQuaid (shoulder injury) — for the rest of the regular season, they were looking for help.

Has Iginla played his last game in Calgary?

Have Flames fans seen the last of Jarome Iginla in Calgary?

Did the stirring ovation given to him following his game-winner late Sunday serve as his last hurrah?

Fans should hope so.
