Hello everyone, welcome to the first installment of Trade Wars: Habsteen26 vs Nucker101! You may already be familiar with this series, as hockeybuzz bloggers Dan Cloutier and Travis Yost did the exact same thing a while ago.

As for the rules, they will be very similar to Travis and Dan's rules. I, will be the acting GM for every team in the Eastern Conference while my colleague Nucker101 will be the GM for every team in the Western conference. Each of the 15 teams from each conference HAS to have one trade completed, and they can't make more than one trade. Each blog will contain 5 trades (not including counter offers) and they will either be declined or accepted in the next blog. Salary cap WILL come into affect and will be based off of Hockeybuzz's cap central. All NTC/NMC will be assumed waived. So, I think that covers just about everything.... so lets get to it!!!!!

First Trade offer: New York Rangers offer Wojtek Wolski, Artem Anisimov, Dan Girardi and a conditional 2012 1st round pick (if the Rangers make it to the Eastern Conference Finals) To the Calgary Flames for Jarome Iginla

Second Trade offer: Washington Capitals offer Alex Semin and Karl Alzner to the Anaheim Ducks for Bobby Ryan and a 2012 2nd round pick.

Third Trade offer: New Jersey Devils offer Zach Parise and Mark Fayne to the Los Angeles Kings for Jonathon Bernier, Andrei Loktionov, Slava Voynov and Dustin Penner.

Fourth Trade offer: Pittsburgh Peguins offer Tyler Kennedy to the Minnesota Wild for Greg Zanon and a 2012 2nd round pick.

Fifth Trade offer:Tampa Bay Lightning offer Ryan Malone, Mathieu Garon and their 2012 and 2013 1st round picks to the Vancouver Canucks for Roberto Luongo and Alexander Burrows.

Okay, well that does it for part 1! Leave some comments to tell us what you guys think! Part 2 will be coming from Nucker101 in the next couple of days, so stay tuned!

Use capgeek seeing that the hockey buzz cap calculator is the biggest piece of trash known to man.

Not much I like if I'm in the west expecially number 5, offering a third liner who makes top money, and a career backup along with probably a mid to late first rounder for a top goaltender (no matter his issues). Only one I'd take is the parise deal kings mabey give up a little much but they've got the depth to replace, getting rid of penner is a plus too.

really the only one i think is fair and that i like is the rangers-flames trade. WSH-ANA- ANA would be stupid to take Semin. Didnt Bruce get driven out because of Bruce? Didn't Bruce have a problem with Semin? Plus, Alzner and Semin isnt enough for Ryan. WSH would win that big.

I think VAN would be a better trading partner for the Devils and Parise as long as they could have the cap space. I think something like Cory Schiender, Cody Hogdson, 1st round pick, and a cap dump or low end defensemen for Parise and maybe a later draft pick.

kennedy for zanon and a 2nd is a somewhat decent deal but i think the penguins would be foolish to trade someone like kennedy for defense. around the trade deadline there will be plenty of chances for shero to add without subtracting. i think kennedy is dealt only for a better RWer. The TB trade isnt terrible, i just dont see TB trading 2 1st round picks. plus i think VAN could get better offers than that. but i always like these things so hopefully you guys keep these coming!

Devils send Zach Parise to Boston for Tuuka Rask Brad Marchand.makes a heck of sense for both teams... a great young goalie and a very good young center who can play responsibe D-wise for a real scoring machine. lets get it done !

It can't be within the same conference, but I think that may be overpaying for Parise.

Rangers can dream on if they want to give a Leaf type of package for Iggy. Just as soon keep him if thats the offer. Thx but no thanks, dont call us, we'll call you.

There is no chance Anaheim would go for Semin and Alzner for Ryan and 2nd round pick. Send Semin and a first round pick to the desert for Yandle and Turris

No way Nucks give up Burrows. His chemistry with the twins increases his value for with the team and he only costs $2 mill. I would like to see Brett Connolly include in a deal from Tampa.

I have something in store for Phoenix, which is why I left them out of the Semin sweepstakes.. as for Burrows, I think its time for a change. Would fit nice on a line with Stamkos and St.Louis.

Agreed Kevin R it would take alot more then that to get Iggy

I know iggy is awesome but he is getting on in years and willdrop off a lot one of these days - how soon? With the way the rangers are playing now it's hard to fathom giving upgirardi (a rock and perfect guy for their system) and anisimovwho seems to be taking a real step forward. I know it wouldappear that Iggy should fetch more but I don't think I'd do thedeal from a rangers perspective. You can have wolski for nothing.
