Team(s) Interested: Montreal Canadiens- Ah, the world of Twitter. A source, who I will not name, claims the Habs and Flames are “Very, Very close” to a deal where Calgary sends Iginla to Montreal for Max Pacioretty, Yannick Weber and a 1st or 2nd round draft pick. Montreal isn’t going to send their best player away for an aging winger. Pacioretty is the future of the Canadiens. Iginla is no question the best player in this deal, but Montreal would be giving away a player deemed untouchable. Weber, on the other hand, has been in many trade talks for a while, but considering Andrei Markov is done for at least another week, Montreal may be cautioned to trade him or any defenseman. I’m not saying there is no chance in this deal, but its unlikely.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page:
