Some want Jarome out? Staal injured at practice, Malkin and Letang missing … Kuba, Leclaire almost ready … plus more
  • Elliotte Friedman of CBC Sports: Some people in the Calgary Flames organization want Jarome Iginla to be traded. Friedman was told in the summer that “Iginla will not agree to a trade unless the Flames make it public that any move is the team’s choice, not his.” Mark Giordano had a 3-way contract six years ago, one for each of the NHL, AHL, and ECHL.
