Do you think that PK Subban Should be selected for team Canada?

Should Preds trade Shea Weber? The answer may surprise you

The news couldn’t have been much worse for Predators fans: star goalie Pekka Rinne will be out of the lineup for a month because of a bacterial infection in his hip. It’s not the end of the world, mind you, but the absence of one of Nashville’s two key cornerstones almost certainly will result in the team struggling.

More importantly, it will illustrate why the unthinkable with this franchise has to be thinkable – and doable – relatively soon. The Preds have to trade Shea Weber.

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.

Canucks must move Luongo and close the book on this never ending saga.

What the Canucks do have is one too many No. 1 goalies. They will spend the lead-up to April 3 trying to finally close on the long-anticipated Roberto Luongo trade.

It’s time to shut the book on a saga that has drifted on way too long. If they can’t pull the trigger on a Luongo-for-a-centre deal, consider it a failure for an organization that will have one of its best assets sitting on the bench for every playoff game.

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.

Pens, Bruins, Hawks and Kings on Iginla’s list

As the April 3 NHL trade deadline approaches, speculation continues to swirl around Calgary Flames captain Jarome Iginla.

Makes all kinds of sense for Ottawa Senators GM Bryan Murray to go after Corey Perry during off-season

Surely, there was more to Bryan Murray’s master plan than meets the eye.

When the Senators GM convinced owner Eugene Melnyk to keep him around for a rebuild three winters ago, he had to have whispered something to go along with “we’ll just dump salaries, make good draft picks and ride our promising young players.”

He must have also mentioned the name Corey Perry.

Losses making Iginla’s decision easier

With every embarrassing loss, Jarome Iginla’s decision must get a little bit easier.

Iginla and Flames still not talking extension

Time is ticking away on the Jarome Iginla era in Calgary, as the most popular player in franchise history has yet to decide whether he wants to remain with the Flames.

Iginla’s agent, Don Meehan, has given the Calgary Sun an ominous update on the situation between the two sides, saying the Flames captain is “not currently in negotiations” with the NHL club he’s played with the last 18 years.
