They also have to resign Malkin in a couple years. Hopefully they don't
Sources have told TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger that Iginla submitted a list of four teams he would approve a trade to: the Pittsburgh Penguins, Boston Bruins, Chicago Blackhawks and Los Angeles Kings.
Dreger is a lot better than Kypreos
Considering what Getzlaf and Perry got from an organization that doesn't spend to the cap, Malkin is due for $10 million per.
And when he is a UFA, Letang will command big bucks. Unless he takes a big discount, Pittsburgh will have to chose between Malkin or Letang.
By NEED they should sign Letang. But it would be hard to sign a top 5 D-man over the 2nd best player in the world.

Malkin already has a cap hit of 8.7 I don't think the Pens would have an issue going a bit higher. Pens have a lot of top tier d prospects like Pouliot, Harrington and Maatta you could probably put Dumolin in that class as well. Letang will probably leave.
There is also if he want to play second fiddle to Crosby his whole career. Hank would still be the leader if Malkin were to come here he would be the guy probably if Pav was still here too. I really expect for Detroit to go hard on Malkin. If he can buy into the system he could be just a big as Fedorov was.
Ok so Iginla for a pick, top prospect, and secondary prospect. Key here is what is the definition of top and secondary? Let's assume top is Tatar, Nyquist, Mrazek, Andersson (not considering Smith a prospect anymore, nor do I want to give him up). Secondary becomes Jarnkrok, Sheahan, Ferraro, Almqvist, anybody else?
If they would take our 1st pick, Andersson, and Sheahan, I'd do it. Anything more than that, I'm out.
Iginla isn't even in the top 50 players in points, goals, or assists after having a huge drop off in points last season. Maybe he can find his scoring touch somewhere else, but I'm thinking more like Luc Robitaille to the Wings type scenario. Let some other team trade away their future for a guy that is about to realize he's closer to retirement than he wants to admit.
I say this with all love and respect: you're insane. Andersson is this year's Helm (the PP & PK guy), but bigger; Sheahan should be replaced by Jurco or Ferraro.
Malik was kind enough to link to a Hockey's Future review of the talent Detroit has in the minors, to wit:
"To borrow a metaphor more commonly associated with the other team Mike Ilitch owns, the Red Wings swung for the fences in free agency during the summer of 2012 and ended up striking out. Upon closer examination, however, it appears that Detroit might have budding stars within the organization that could make people forget the summer of 2012 altogether in the very near future. From the astounding rise of Petr Mrazek to the emergence of a host of former Griffins now playing for the Red Wings, it appears that Detroit has stocked their cupboards with plenty of NHL talent."
Spring is just around the corner, and as the weather heats up so too does the on-ice action in leagues around the world. As we reach the end of
Thank you, Denicos.
Forgot about Jurco.
In looking at this trade, you also have to assess whether or not Iginla would sign a new contract here. In trading Andersson, I'm assuming Iginla signs. Yes, Andersson has done a very nice job this year. But there's no guarantee he continues it. If you're offering me Iginla, a proven NHL commodity, or the crapshoot that is Andersson and Sheahan, I'm taking Iginla all day, every day. Sell high, as they say. That's what I'd look to do with Andersson.
Goal by Brunner (or maybe White?). Wings up 1-0 on Yotes.
Don't forget Iginla is 35, so any contract he signs is a 35+ (which under the old CBA, and I believe the new CBA, means it stays against the salary cap even if Iginla can't finish it out).
He's an old fuck, is my point. The Red Wings are trying to get younger. The only reason to trade for him (and give away your quality young depth) would be if you thought he was the difference between a Stanley Cup this year, and not. Do you believe that?
It's possible, I'm not giving you a hard time, just telling you my logic. An Iginla contract for the next couple of years doesn't offset the (potential) loss of Datsyuk after next year, and may or may not mean the franchise (almost said "program") gets better after this year.
Damn. Deflection PK goal to even it up. 1-1
Everybody stopped skating, Yotes take advantage. Down 2-1.

DAMMIT. Gus, get your fuckin' head in the game -- Mrazek is in the minors, and is a hell of a lot cheaper. Show that you're better, or GTFO.
Not that Fil has been helpful, handing the puck over every fuckin' chance.
The (potential) loss of Datsyuk is exactly why I would consider it. No, Iginla may not make us a Cup contender this year. But I want a veteran shooting presence, something we haven't had in a while, in the event Pav does leave. Plus, if Pav goes, the cap space cleared would be such that we could go after someone else, basically making it a 2-for-1.
Might Iginla not make us better? Sure. Might he? Sure. We don't know. And I'm not expecting him to 'replace' Datsyuk. Nobody can, just like nobody can replace Lidstrom. But I want some veteran presence instead of going with all kids.
Dude....I know you're drinking so I'm going be kind. Neither goal was Gus' fault. One is a deflection, goalies give those up all the time. The second, the entire team stopped skating and gave up the puck in their own zone, then didn't take an open Phoenix player out of the play.
Well, fuck me blue. We're still losing.
LET'S GO, RED WINGS!
Forgot the Wings played tonight. Thank god for this thread. Now I have something to watch for the next 2 hours.
Okay, Gus did a good job there.
Have I mentioned how happy I was when they signed Gus? and how I told people he might challenge Howard for the starter's job? Sí, soy un perdedor.
My second video, I'm just now getting the hang of it. Hope you like it~ "Soy un perdedor" means "I'm a loser" (in Spanish) / "Sprechen sie deutsch" means "Do you speak German?"
Beck - Loser
Yeah he has been pret..ty...bad
To be fair, Gustavsson has gotten the short end this year. He's only started one game that wasn't the second game of a back-to-back. He won that game. He's playing well, but just has not gotten a lot of support when he's been in.
BTW. Fuck Shane Doan, I cannot stand that douche.
Yeah, we are gonna need some bounces to go our way to get points tonight, Just don't have the legs right now.
Have I mentioned that this thread never shows that I've posted in it? It shows that I've read it, never (even immediately after I post) that I have posted in it.
That's all. As you were. Thanks, 24/7.
Edit: Oh, and Coyotes up 2-1 after 2. Holy fuckin' wow. I just realized the 2nd period isn't over yet. Maybe I should just sit down. Yeah. 'Yotes 2, Red Wings 1, 8 1/2 left in the 2nd. Jesus.
