The TSN Hockey Insiders Address Some Of The Trade Talk

TSN Hockey Insiders Bob McKenzie, Pierre LeBrun and Darren Dreger gathered for the latest installment of Insider Trading and the topics discussed were the front-runners in the Jarome Iginla sweepstakes, whether other Flames are likely to be traded and Roberto Luongo's future with the Canucks.

Out of the Pittsburgh Penguins, Boston Bruins, L.A. Kings and Chicago Blackhawks, is there a clear front-runner for who will land Jarome Iginla?

Bob McKenzie: I don't know that there is a front-runner necessarily because there are so many moving parts in terms of Iginla, Calgary and the team that they are trading with. But, I would say that Boston is the most motivated team to get Iginla.

When you look at what Boston is trying to do, they lost out on Brenden Morrow, and they do not want to lose out on Iginla. They want and need him perhaps more than Los Angeles, Chicago or Pittsburgh. The price is going to be high for Iginla. He is a rental, a pure rental and right now the Calgary Flames are looking for three elements: a first round pick, a primary prospect and a secondary prospect.

Whether Iginla has more desire to go to Boston than Chicago, Pittsburgh or L.A., he is a Western Conference guy, maybe he wants to stay in the west with L.A. or Chicago. But, Boston seems like the hungriest team to try and get him.
