Occasionally we'll feature guest posts at Puck Drunk Love. This article was penned by Michael Pina and offers a look at the trade deadline and how a guy like Jarome Iginla may give a team that extra edge in their pursuit of the Cup. Every year, in every one of North America’s four major professional sports, the much anticipated trade deadline holds more season-altering potential than any other event. It’s a date that allows organizations to make self-aware statements on where it is they stand, and how you might expect them to perform down the season’s homestretch and into the playoffs. Is Team X looking to fill a weakness or cash out on a strength? Are they comfortably standing pat or desperately scrambling? Are they more interested in making short term decisions to save their respective jobs as highly paid decision-makers at the cost of meaningful issues rising from the muck at some point in the future? In hockey, we’ve seen several major deals take place before the trad...

As always, Mike Colligan delivers an elite performance on a big topic. From the Hockey Writers: The Penguins will — and do — have interest in Jarome Iginla.

Calgary Flames, New York Islanders Likely to Trade Away Key Players as NHL Trade Deadline Looms

The NHL trade deadline is Wednesday, April 3, which means we’re officially less than one month away. It could be an odd trade deadline given the fact that we’re dealing with a shortened season. A lot of teams are still trying to figure out whether they are going to become competitive or whether it’s best to give up the short-term goals and focus on the future. On that note...

Eklund: Could Iginla be the best deadline rental EVER? How much would you pay?

There are reports today that the Flames won't be able to get a whole lot for Jarome Iginla, however talking to my sources I really tend to respectfully disagree...I have always said the amount of respect Iggy gets in the east baffles me. Were he on an Eastern Canadian team or the Bruins, Flyers or Rangers he would be considered one of the top 5 most exciting players in the game...

Calgary Flames win game, deflect trade rumors

Maybe the Miikka Kiprusoff trade rumors will simmer down now that he returned from his knee injury to throttle the San Jose Sharks 4-1 after a month-long layoff.Or perhaps that stellar performance will only intensify interest in the Calgary Flames netminder, who has one year left on his current deal.Kiprusoff feels ready to shoulder a big load as his team prepares for the stretch...

Jarome Iginla, Daniel Alfredsson Possible Trade Targets for Bruins Before April 3 Trade Deadline (Video)

With the April 3 trade deadline approaching, it’s time to brainstorm some names that could help the Bruins during the last month of the season and into the playoffs. NESN’s Gord Kluzak thinks the Bruins could target Jarome Iginla of the Flames or Daniel Alfredsson of the Senators before the trade deadline. Kluzak thinks either player could help the Bruins on the power play...

Colin Dambrauskas: Calgary Flames Playoffs Chances...SJ Sharks Post Game

Follow me on Twitter!: @ColinDJD The Calgary Flames took on the San Jose Sharks at home last night and came through with a big win putting them at a .500 game pace. Kipursoff came back better than before allowing only 1 goal on 33 shots. In the 3rd the Flames were outshot 17-6 and Kipursoff stopped each and every one of them. Having Kipursoff behind the team seemed to elevate...

Fan leaps onto ice during Calgary Flames/San Jose Sharks game (Video)

Over the years on Outside the Boxscore, we've posted some pretty notable fan intrusions during sporting events but this one from last night's Calgary Flames/San Jose Sharks NHL affair is pretty darn impressive. Check out this fan who found his way onto the ice at the Scotiabank Saddledome during the second intermission and it has been noted that he had to leap over the...

Fan jumps on ice during Flames-Sharks game in his boxers

On Wednesday night one of the rarities occurred in hockey, when a fan climbed over the boards and glass to get onto the ice to go running around in his boxers.  How he managed to get over the boards in the corner where he was coming out from is beyond me, but he did it somehow.  At least this time it was between periods when the Calgary Flames and San Jose Sharks were playing....

Colin Dambrauskas: Flames Held Goalless Against Ducks....Take on the LA Kings

Follow me on Twitter!: @ColinDJD As expected by most, the Calgary Flames lost to the hot Anaheim Ducks last night in a 4 zip match. The Flames managed to outshout the Ducks in the first period 12-4 and stay right with them in that department for the two remaining periods, though their chances were just not enough. Despite playing a strong statistical game, the Anaheim Ducks...
