If Flames management + ownership can finally succumb to the idea of re-building...
Although, I think they could get somebody with a higher ceiling than Despres and if the Pens had Iginla that 1st will be awfully late.
Two years ago, Calgary could have received a king's ransom for Iginla. Even last year, they could have expected a lot more than Despres and a late 1st.
However, this year could be different. Iggy's already showed signs of slowing last year - if he shows further signs as this compressed season wears on, that could bring down the price. Also, young players on ELC's are going to be at a premium right now, with the cap going down next season.
If Iginla is struggling at all, would you spend Conaughton and our 1st to rent him for one playoff run? Maybe...but would you spend even more?
