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.

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

Flames - Iginla
Where do you think Iginla will end up?

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.
