Not sure why people are so against Iggy coming to Vancouver? Or do they just expect it not to happen?

He has 2 choices, go with a team he thinks might win the cup, or be the leader on a rebuilding team... I guess it all depends on how much he wants a cup to go with his olympic gold medals.

If he DOES want to play in Vancouver I think it would be great for the team. Who is the leadership of the team?

Sedins and Bieksa at the very least. Canucks have an excellent leadership core. People may knock the Sedins for being "soft" (which I think is BS), too Euro, etc etc. but one thing they do well is being good leaders on and off the ice. They're always in the best shape coming into camp (think of how much of a statement it was for Santorelli to beat them in the timed run. It's because it never happens). And they always set an excellent example with their off-ice contributions to the community.

Those guys command the room. Personally I have no issues with that. And to be honest, it's received a boost with Kesler shipped out. Existing Canucks want to play for Hank and Dank, and guys who come in from other teams speak nothing but praise for them.

If Iginla wants to come here (which I doubt), he would add greatly to the already excellent leadership core. Having Iggy in the room with the now-youth-laden Canucks would be akin to what Trevor/Markus/Sundin (yes Naslund and Sundin- they did do something) did for the Sedins and Kesler in order for them to take the next step.

Trevor would never trade Edler, it's his favorite defensive child.

I have no problems with Iginla here, but I would assume he's going for the cup right now...

Trade Burrows and we can afford to sign Iginla, and put in an offer for Johansen. Trade for E. Kane would be great for us too.

Sedin Sedin Iginla
E Kane Johansen Kassian.

Columbus matches any offer. Jets wants the likes of horvat, shinkaruk+. Add to the fact he has obvious attitude problems.

If St Louis doesn't want him, that should be enough for us to sign someone else. Or ride the tandem goalies and trade one at the deadline for assets.

If you consider the circumstances, the Kesler trade was nothing short of a miracle.

They basically had ONE team to work with. Chicago can't afford him, and he was going to sit out the season if they didn't trade him. That they were able to get anything decent for him is pretty impressive, IMO

Only on the PP. The Sedin's need a puck pursuer on their line as they won't get to the puck first with their advancing age.

Iginla is not that guy as he's also not the fleetest of foot.
