Jarome Iginla says he would consider waiving his no-trade clause should the Calgary Flames ask him to consider changing teams.
“If they don’t want me here and they want to move in a direction or rebuild or believed they could do better, I would look at it,” the Calgary Flames captain said Wednesday as the players packed up their belongings at the Pengrowth Saddledome.
As if the Lightning, after three straight dismal seasons, needed another reason to take its rebuilding program seriously, there is this:
Two days after finishing the regular season with the league’s worst record, the Oilers won Tuesday’s annual draft lottery to secure the top pick in the June draft. It marks the fourth time in five years that the league’s worst team has ended up with the top pick.
First lesson of a power struggle:
Make sure the boss actually cares who wins.

No telling if captain would ever agree to be dealt
Mats Sundin screwed the Toronto Maple Leafs.
If, or when, the time ever comes for Jarome Iginla to make a decision regarding the franchise he loves, we’ll find out where his loyalty lies.
At this time every season, I make sure to take a close look at second-half records in order to give myself a better feel for the playoffs.
The Panthers have one week remaining in the 2009-10 season. Is this Tomas Vokoun’s final week with the team?
All those “Price is right” puns – Habs fans likely never imagined it would come to this and take on such a perspective.
This might be more than speculative, but rumours are that the Flyers were only curious about the asking price for Jaroslav Halak a few months back, and that the goaltender they truly covet is Carey Price. In fact, as Halak earned more starts for Montreal down the final stretch, at one point, GM Pierre Gauthier let it slip that calls for Price from teams actually increased the more the Habs leaned towards Halak as their go to goalie.
Who has been the best goalie in the NHL this season?
To call it a new story would be misleading, so I won’t. But it’s definitely a hot topic of conversation here in Toronto, even with only five games left and even though those may be Tomas Kaberle’s last five with the Leafs.
Brian Burke has made some great moves for the Leafs going forward. Although he has tweaked the lineup in a major way, there are still some moves to be made over the summer. These moves would be cost effective, and at the same time give us the contender tag. Here goes:
