St. Louis Blues
Detroit Red Wings
Now that Jarome Iginla has departed Calgary, teams have stepped up their bidding for defenseman Jay Bouwmeester. Since he has a year remaining on his contract – at $6.6 million – contenders might be willing to spend more for him that they would on a rental player like Iginla.The St. Louis Blues are shopping for a defenseman to pair with Alex Pietrangelo. That team could offer winger Ty Rattie, who excelled playing with Flames prospect Sven Baertschi in the Western Hockey League. The Blues could easily part with young defenseman Ian Cole and draft picks to make a deal.The Detroit Red Wings, Philadelphia Flyers and Boston Bruins are just some of the other potential destinations.Bouwmeester, 29, isn’t a physical player. But he can rush the puck and he his famously durable, with 620 consecutive games played and counting. He has no-trade protection in his contract, so the Flames are already discussing trade possibilities with him. The Flames need to rebuild and Bouwmeester has an opportu...

The Hockey Central Trade Tracker panel at Sportsnet believes Jay Bouwmeester will be traded by Wednesday and mention some possible destinations.
For about five hours on Wednesday, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli believed he had just landed the most-coveted player on the trade market, Jarome Iginla.
At around 12 p.m. ET on Wednesday, as the B’s were preparing for the Canadiens at TD Garden in Boston, Chiarelli was told by Flames GM Jay Feaster that he had “won the Jarome Iginla sweepstakes.”
Chiarelli, who told...
The Boston Bruins believed they had made a deal to obtain Jarome Iginla before the Calgary Flames traded their captain to the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli says he was told by Flames general manager Jay Feaster at about noon on Wednesday that he had ''won the Jarome Iginla sweepstakes.''
But Chiarelli said on Thursday that shortly before...
The Bruins thought they had Jarome Iginla — then they didn’t.
After losing out on the longtime Calgary captain to the Pittsburgh Penguins — who had also previously acquired Brenden Morrow and Doug Murray — suggesting it’s panic time for the Bruins might not be too far off the mark. Nonetheless, the players that are actually on the team are staying focused, saying that they’re...
After scoring more than 500 goals in Calgary, Jarome Iginla just wants to fit in with Sidney Crosby and the streaking Pittsburgh Penguins.
The former Flames captain, acquired early Thursday in Pittsburgh's latest blockbuster trade, made his Penguins debut Saturday against the New York Islanders.
Pittsburgh was looking for its 15th straight victory, which would be two shy of...
Less than a week ago, Matt Bartkowski was thought to be headed for Calgary. The rookie defenseman was one of the Bruins prospects involved in the proposed trade for Flames star Jarome Iginla.
But Iginla opted to take his talents to Pittsburgh, so Bartkowski stayed put and on Sunday found his way onto the scoresheet for the first time. The 24-year-old assisted on David Krejci‘s...
The past couple weeks have been, strange, to say the least, for the Bruins. Their outstanding start has started to level off, maybe even decline. The schedule sped up, and games have been jam packed into the weeks. Injuries have plagued the team, causing many different guys to suit up and play. The B's "got" Jarome Iginla, and then didn't. And yet through all of...
Peter Chiarelli stood in front of the Boston media Thursday afternoon looking like a tired and beaten man. In many ways, there were no better words to describe the Bruins general manager.
Hopefully for his own physical sake he got a little bit of shut-eye after that revealing news conference, but he doesn’t have much time to rest. But then again, there’s no rest for the weary...
Ron MacLean of HNIC chatted with Jarome Iginla today via satellite after his first game with the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Iginla discusses his first game with the Penguins and the trade process.
The dust is beginning to settle from the fallout of one of the craziest nights in recent Boston hockey history. The Bruins played a crazy game against Montreal while trade winds blew into a all out hurricane. The Bruins had aquired Jarome Iginla.
Untill 2 AM. When reports came out that Jarome went not to the Bruins but to the Pittsburgh Penguins. Most Bruins fans were sleeping...
With Jarome Iginla being traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins early Thursday morning, pessimistic Red Wings fans and members of the Detroit media continued their doomsday mentality. Questions once again arose from the fans and media alike wondering if Ken Holland is asleep at the wheel, if players are afraid to play for Mike Babcock or if Detroit has lost the cache and desirability...
Vinny Prospal had the go-ahead goal and an assist in a four-goal second period to help the Columbus Blue Jackets beat Calgary 6-4 on Friday night in the Flames' first game since they traded longtime captain Jarome Iginla to Pittsburgh
Mark Letestu, Matt Calvert, Derick Brasard, Ryan Johansen and R.J. Umberger also scored for the Blue Jackets. Columbus, 1-2-1 on its four-game...
Goddamn. Jay Feaster is so incompetent at his job that now he's expanded business to Boston. Not only did he tell Chiarelli that the Bruins had Jarome Iginla, he also requested the Bruins sign that one-year contract with Matt Bartkowski so he'd be all contracted up for the Flames when the trade was finalized.
Matt Bartkowski confirmed his one-way contract was...

We got news of Paul Martin being out for 6 weeks.
Jarome Iginla announced he would play.
Sidney Crosby's teeth got destroyed by a slapshot and went to the hospital.
Chris Kunitz got kicked out and will be facing a suspension.
But of all those things, the top moment was Matt Cooke scoring the game-winning...
