Seriously dude! What are you smoking? I'm sure i've asked before. I guess this is more proof that they will let anyone make up crap on the internet. I think we should trade you for a monkey with average typing skills...

You really take it too seriously. I should have said before that it was a dream state and not what actually will happen. It's supposed to be creative and imaginative, but I guess you chose to take my "fiction" for fact.

I liked it man, I am sure a ton of Flames fans have put thought into the future line up and circumstances the team will find itself in. Anyone who figures the Flames will go without trading a big name or two can keep 'smoking' whatever it is they are smoking, but it won't be anywhere near reality.

I'll take Schenn and a 1st for Iggy and JVR and a 1st for Kipper. :-D *runs and hides from impending insults*

RE: Rinklighter: haha! Iggy is the final piece of the puzzle for teams on the bubble. He will put a team over the top, so the Flames should be able to get a lot for him. I just hope if Feaster decides to do so, he exhausts his options, instead of what DSUTS did with Dion

The problem is Iggy's age and cap hit and NTC. There will be very few dancing partners willing or able to take him on, and few that he would probably waive for. If we do trade him, the return is likely to disappoint many. (People are hoping for Malkin for Christ's sake.) But, is it better to keep him and not contend and get nothing for him for the next X years? I don't envy the mess Feaster has inherited and the few options he has.

Remember, all we got for Nieuwendyk, who put Dallas over the top for a Cup, was an unproven prospect...

Rink your hopes are not out of the realm but teams do have the summer to make room of a full year of Iggy for remaining 2 years, so more trade partners than you think. lets get a bidding war going.

They still have to be contenders that Iggy is willing to waive for. When a player has total control over where he goes/if he goes, we have only to look at Heatley to see what that does to a player's value. What if there are say, only 5 teams Iggy is willing to go to? And maybe only one or two of those that want him/can afford him/will give up the price for him? (I'm obviously being pessimistic, but it's not an unlikely situation either.)

Hahaha Sharks would never give that much up for an aging Kipper, as good as he is

Then you only trade him in the offseason

How does the offseason change the scenario? Iggy's NTC doesn't go away in the offseason. He still has total control. There are probably still only a handful of contending teams Iggy would waive for.

Teams can trade in off season to make Iggy fit, hence more trading partners for Iggy to pick from.

I don't think the number of teams he would be willing to waive for would change very much between the deadline and the offseason. Yes, more teams might have cap space, but the specific teams he'd be willing to go to likely wouldn't change.

Yeah maybe. But easier to relocate family in off season which may make him more flexible. Just saying, maybe more to drive price up, know what I mean!
