As has been speculated all night, Aaron Ward of TSN recently confirmed the Flames long time captain has been traded to the Bruins. The assumed return is Alex Khokhlachev, Matt Bartkowski and a first round pick. We will update with further confirmation and other news as it breaks.

For Kenneth AgostinoBen Hanowski and a first round pick.

Good luck in Pittsburgh Jarome. And thank you for everything. Go win that cup.

More to come...

Wow! I cant believe the people on this board were expecting the return to be our new franchise player. I've been reading the boards on this site of how far Iginla has declined, he's getting bashed by the top competition & should only be given sheltered minutes. On & on after every game, the same thing, Iggy is a floater, doesnt backcheck. I have been reading people arguing how we would be lucky to get a 1st rounder for him as a rental. Guess what guys, we got our 1st rounder for him. Hellooo!! How would everyone like it if we were trading Iggy & a 2014 2nd to LA for Bernier. Those were reports of the type of deals on the table. Pitt is going to have trouble resigning him, they have Letang & Malkin contracts coming up in 12 months. Look at what happened to Dallas, they lost Richards for nothing. Semin walked & Wash got zip. At least we get a 1 st in a very deep solid draft. The other guys is just polyfiller. At least we get to watch Iggy get an awful great chance at winning a Cup. all in all, not a bad night, we won a hockey game, acquired a 2nd 1st round pick, we shaved 7.0 mill off our payroll/cap & Iggy is going to a great place. Thankyou Jerome, good luck & win that Cup.

I think if it is in fact a conditional pick I might be done. I've devoted a lot of time, energy, money and more than a few tears to this franchise and I think I'm at my breaking point.

Maybe I'll follow Iggy to Boston. Maybe I'll put out an ad to every team not Edmonton or Vancouver and see if anyone wants to recruit me. I hope I wake up tomorrow and find out Bobby Mac was wrong, that this was all just a very bad dream.

The Flames couldn't have done better,

Stan Bowman: Iginla for a 1st round pick, Saad and Frolik? Nope. Ray Shero: Iginal for a 1st round pick, Kennedy/Depres/Bennett/Maata? Nope. Dean Lombardi: Iginla for a 1st round pick, Johnathan Bernier? Maybe?? Peter Chiarelli: Iginla for a 1st round pick, Spooner, and Knight? Nope, how about Matt Bartkowski, prospect Alexander Khokhlachev and 1st round pick? Feaster: Okay, I guess that will do.

Why? When Reg agreed to trade his NTC, we were dreaming about Myers, Kassian, etc. Not going to happen.

The conditional 1st rounder wouldn't be so bad if we got one of their top prospects/young players, not their 4th or 5th best prospect. Spooner, Knight or Hamilton would've been more worth it than Khokhlachev...

Sportsnet keeps saying Khokl's is the B's 2nd best prospect behind Subban. Really?

I think that's a load. Even if you ignore Hamilton , Spooner seems (IMO) to be a better center - higher ceiling. Knight is debateable, but he's a wing so I can understand why we'd lean away from that. But he seems like a total player, whereas Khokhlachev seems like another Cervenka.

This trade is as expected. A major loss. I am not at all happy. I cannot believe that they made the pick conditional. That's insane. I want faster fired. Some average Russian, a 7th defence man and possibly no pick! Is this for real. I assumed I would be underwhelmed, not made sick to my stomach.. There should be chants of fire faster in the saddle dome

I am pretty much done as a Flames fan. I wanted Iginla traded, but for this? I don't think that anything will be different about this trade when it gets officially announced. It's Bartkowski, Kovalchukovalol, and a conditional first for Iginla signing. What if Iginla gets offered fat money in PIT for 2013-2014 and beyond? The Flames get a double fist in the a$$ at that point.

Who are these 'prospects'? Given that I know a fairly decent amount, and have been reading up on the prospects of potential Iginla suitors, it appears Feaster got hosed. Big time. I have no idea who these guys are and nobody seems to be too high on them.

Feaster got more for trading Brad Richards from Tampa. This couldn't have been the only deal available, or even the best one. People must go into these dealings laughing at Feaster, knowing he's more interested in the buffet than the actual business.

I stand by my original comment.

Hopefully Feaster chokes on his second Big Mac meal while sitting in the Wendy's drive thru on his way home.

@Kevin R

"That is huge & consider a high end UFA as the remaining part of this return."

...http://capgeek.com/free-agents/

The most high end skater I see on that list is... Jarome Iginla. I jest but only slightly. Free agent skaters suck this year. Don't fancy overpaying for Mason Raymond.

I'm a fan of the team up the road, but that really doesn't matter right now. Iggy is a great player and a real gentleman. I'm sorry for the loss the fans of the Flames are feeling tonight and will for some time to come. We felt that way too when Smytty was traded. I wish Iggy all the best and I sincerely hope he wins the cup this year. I'm sure all the fans in Calgary want him to skate around hoisting the best prize in sports. Thanks for all you've done and everything you represent. Iggy is one class act and a hard one to follow.

Seriously how does he have this job? Kent could do a better job at the helm. I can't wait to hear his stupid press release tomorrow. I'm sure he will say bartkowski is the second coming of bobby Orr and kak is going to be better than Gretzky.

We don't even need that first right?

Iginla is better than Penner.

The return cannot be compared straight across because markets change and the buyers aren't the same.

The Flames still appear to have gotten the short end here, but consider this from Chiarelli's side: how much do you want to give up for six weeks of a player with absolutely no guarantee that he wins you a Stanley Cup?

Now, if someone said the Oilers got more for Pronger, absolutely. No arguments.

Looking on the TV tonight at Jaromes career stats I actually forgot how much he actually has done in Calgary as a player,quite impressive I might add and that doesn't include the extra fundraising charity etc. as well.I hope he resigns in Calgary when done in Boston to help the young crop after the veteran house cleaning here.
