Marleau for Iginla

April 15, 2010

With the Flames out of the playoffs and having no solace in a first overall draft pick or a GM that sounds like someone flicked his ear, talk has begun regarding shipping someone out of town. Calgarians must have a mortal fear of anything called Sutter, so they’re calling for captain Jarome Iginla’s head. It must be his fault, not all the third liners from the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Watching the San Jose Sharks begin their annual choke-drive in the Stanley Cup Playoffs last night, it donned on me: Patrick Marleau is a better all around player than Thornton or “Camps-in-the-slot” Dany Heatley. Both Calgary and San Jose need a shake-up, Iginla only needs a supportive centreman like Thornton to jump-start his career, and Marleau seems more capable of creating offense on his own, as evidenced by his play in the Olympics.

    Maybe Iginla wants to play for the Oilers? maybe if we beg him..

    The Flames built their team around one guy, and a goaltender, and are now surprised this didn’t work to their advantage..evidence that goaltenders alone don’t win championships.

    Boo Flames.

    and ha ha.

    Sorry man I have to cut your balls off on this one. Marleau’s a free agent come summer (hence the career season). I can’t wait until they trade iginla to New York to get yokinen back.

    Throw in Wade Redden as well to help anchor Steve Staios.

    Alls I’m saying is that it’s a perfect fit. What, you think I researched this idea?
