The Latest Trade Talk

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

- Who doesn’t want to see Jarome Iginla escape the Colorado Avalanche and get another playoff run under his belt before he retires?

The 39-year-old winger has publicly stated his desire to join a playoff team if at all possible.

Could a reunion with his former Calgary Flames coach/GM Darryl Sutter be a possibility? A source told ESPN.com that the Los Angeles Kings have kicked around the merits of that idea given that history between their coach and Iginla. Whether the Kings actually decide to act on it and call Colorado about it remains to be seen....

- Pending UFAs Kyle Quincey and P.A. Parenteau will likely be shipped out before March 1 unless the New Jersey Devils claw their way into a playoff spot. Quincey could be an under-the-radar add-on. The left-handed defenseman plays the right side and has averaged more than 18 minutes a night. And his cap hit ($1.25 million) is easy to digest.

Given how long it took Quincey to get a call this summer, I can’t imagine he’s a hot commodity at the trade deadline.  There was some surprise someone signed him at all.
