Ken King now throwing Iginla under the bus. This from Cowpuke:


Ken King interview on sportnet today.

-Iginla forced flames hands, would only agree to go to pits
-should of had iginlas list of preferred teams in writing
-says management thought the team would compete this year
-backhandedly admits that the rebuild has started (at very end)

To me this show again how Feaster messed up. He thought he had the green light but not so. Now they blame Iginla for exercising his right to refuse to go to Boston.

Hopefully MG avoids this with Luongo.

The team has to be in the East and at he very least in the top 10. I could see Luo boycotting say NYI.

Just listened to the interview, what comes across is Damien Cox is an idiot.

He represents the 6 year old Bountiful crowd very well.

Seems the fuck up was between Feaster and Chiarelli. The question is, did Feaster tell Boston the deal negotiated was dependant upon Al Jolson's approval.

The best thing about the trade is Vancouver has two more games vs the Flames.

I dont see the point in King saying this.

The Bruins offer was basically a first plus a B level and C level prospect. The Pens offer was a first and two C level prospects.

So you are going to throw one of the best players in franchise history under the Bus over the difference between a B and C prospect?

-edit- I take it back after listening to the interview in full King clearly did not throw Iginla under the bus.

King didn't throw Iginla under the bus. All he said was Iginla had the last say and he exercised that option. He lauded Iginla in the interview calling him an iconic figure in Calgary and that it was a very sad day for the organization.

Topper is right Damian Cox came across as the moronic Torontonian that he is.

So J-Bo nets another 1st round pick and two no-name prospects from the Blues.

That's 3 1st round draft picks in a deep draft. Should be a good start for a re-build.

Good dump for the Flames. I look to move Kipper , Tanguay and Cammalleri next. Perhaps Glencross.

Only if the Blues make the playoffs, which they should, otherwise it's a 4th this year and a 1st in 2014.

Although based on J-Bows history it may be all but guaranteed that the Blues will miss the playoffs.

I've been looking for a re-build for at least 3 years now. But, yeah, it's nice that it is finally happening. I'm happy that they are getting 1st round draft picks, but it's a gamble, especially with Feaster running the show. Anyway, it had to be done. I hope they aren't finished either. Really gut the team and suck for the next two or three years and pile up high draft picks. Then, in about 5 years, they might have at team that will be interesting to watch.

Apparently the Leafs have been given permission to speak to Kipper and his agent.

Flames are in full "retool" :lol: mode...


So Luongo is only worth a 2nd round pick? Does anyone truly believe this?? Luongo guarantees wins. Bouwmeester guarantees you don't make the playoffs.

The scouts have done an about face on this draft with them now saying the top ten are good but after that it is a week draft.

Lost in all the Flames talk I have read is the fact they are clearing a boatload of cap space.

Their picks and prospects may not see an NHL game for 3-4 years, In the mean time, the free agent market is theirs to milk.

Question is, can their management handle the task?
