Paying Iginla 7.5M per season and Turek more than 4.0M per season is insane. If Iginla ever goes down with injury, who's gonna replace him? Paying someone 7.5M per season is pushing it when a team runs into injury which always happens. No team goes through a season without injury. Remember the amount of injuries the Oilers had last season. The depth they had in Hamilton helped them survice during the time of their injury crisis and this despite sharing their farm team with Montreal. I'd rather have depth than a 7.5M hockey player. Despite having Iginla, the Flames still haven't made the playoffs for 7 years.
