Iginla to Canucks?

HockeyBreak (@HockeyBreak) has confirmed that the Vancouver Canucks have shown interest in the Calgary Flames' Jarome Iginla. He also says that Canucks' management has talked owner Mr. Aquilini about acquiring the forward.

My sources told me that they would expect a player like Alex Burrows, Corey Schneider, or Cody Hodgson, and a first rounder and a few other things included for a player like him.

Other Rumors:

  • Super Trade: Nash for Getzlaf? - Doesn't seem likely but would blow the league up if it happens.
  • Habs are interested in Francois Beauchemin - Is it just me or do the Habs love the old Leafs defenseman? Hal Gill, now maybe Francois Beauchemin?
  • Tom Gleason's name has been floating around a lot... 
  • Kings and Lightning could have a massive trade if one of the players waives their NTC - I'm thinking maybe Vincent Lecavalier or maybe Mike Richards?
  • Hemsky and Okposo linked to Pittsburgh. - With their injury woes, i'm not surprised.

Pittsburgh Panic Mode?

With Crosby, Letang, Staal, Neal, and Adams all injured, should the Penguins be in panic mode? The marquee players they have left are Evgeni Malkin and Marc-Andre Fleury. This blogger thinks that the next few games will tell GM Ray Shero what to do up till the trade deadline. If the team seems capable, Shero should just relax and lets his team work. However, if the team seems to tank, panic mode should be put in and Shero needs players who can score. What happens waits to be seen.
