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.
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 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.
Rumors today in BOS were Jordan Caron and Matt Bartkowski were perhaps on way out. Caron in, Bartkowski scratched, Krug called up.

-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.

Don’t confuse interest with current trade talks or offers. Toronto would like to add a vet goalie. IF Kipper is avail, calls will be made.

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.
Just told Flames GM Jay Feaster sent an email to 29 GMs informing Anton Babchuk and Cory Sarich are available. Both have NTCs.

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.
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.
