The race to acquire Jarome Iginla at the trade deadline is about to get really hot.
Renaud Lavoie of RDS reports [...] the Flames captain has submitted a list of four teams he’d approve a trade to. Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Pittsburgh are his desired locations and it appears he’s very serious about winning the Stanley Cup this year.[...]
I don’t even know where Jarome Iginla is supposed to fit on the Kings. Third line center? And for that, a rental, we’re supposed to give up — what — our best goalie this season? That would be stupid. A top prospect? Not Tyler Toffoli. A top-four defenseman? That’s not going to happen; we’re thin enough as it is.
Seriously, what is the offer “too good to refuse” for Lombardi? Hey, I’ve got it, and I’m serious, too:
Linden Vey (Western Canada), Martin Jones (former Calgary Hitman), Brandon Kozun (former Hitman), and two conditional picks, 1st round picks in 2014 and 2015, the condition being that if the Kings don’t win the cup, the Flames get no picks. Or the rights to Bud Holloway. Their choice.
