Alfredsson

Yes.

The Pens miss that wily veteran and he should be a target come trade deadline. He's also a notorious playoff performer.

Or Iginla.

Yes.

I thought the text in your post was going to say "will retire a Senator. Sorry this is NPR".

The whole Bryan Murray will let Alfie decide angle is already getting tiresome. Its really picked up steam in recent days on NHLN and other places. Lebrun thinks the Bruins would be the most interested.

Do you really think Bryan Murray wants to trade with the Pens?

I don't think he "wants" to, but if he gets the best offer from them and Alfie says I'd like to play there because I think its my best shot, then it will happen.

Alfy is not going anywhere. The main reason why he stayed this season is because his son wanted to see him play. Kinda hard to do that when he is 500+ miles away. Alfy is a Senator for life.

Iginla on the other hand...

I can just imagine. That was a very stupid idea from Lebrun. Does he seriously think the Sens are going to deal him within their own division??

If OTT is out of it, and BOS gives them the best offer, I could see it happening. Plus, he is a UFA after this season. He could spend the playoffs in Boston and then re-sign with OTT if he wants to come back.

I think Iggy will move. I really do. If he didn't want to move, he would have signed an extension by now. Alfredson is 40 years old.. he is on a year-by-year basis. Iggy still has another 3 year deal left in him.

That would be very awkward for him. Oh hey guys, sorry I didn't stick around. Can I have my captaincy back?

True, but if anyone gets a pass for it, I imagine it is him.

I don't think it would. He'd help them out by getting some assets for him then be back when Spezza and Karlsson were healthy for a full season...if he had anything left.

it's tough to engage in any of these hypotheticals when your team has no roster players with any trade value that they'd be willing to part with.

Here's something to consider: the Flyers are going to trade for Jagr, especially if Dallas is out of the hunt. They want him back to skate with Hartnell and Giroux. If the Pens acquired him, it would give Malkin and Neal a veteran linemate and deny Philly from getting him back.

Yes, there would be a media frenzy for a few days, and some fans on here are bitter towards Jagr, blah blah, I get that. But this is a business and making that move could potentially be good on two fronts.

Just sayin.

I'd say a trade for Alfie starts with no less than Despres.

If Bylsma's not going to play Despres, why not trade him?

I don't agree either. For a UFA that very well would head back to Ottawa next season? Picks and prospects only.

EDIT: And, I don't think the Pens will ever consider Jagr an option.
