To me a change would not only benefit the flames, but Iggy as well.
That's entirely speculation. There's a lot more that goes into wanting to leave a city than the hockey aspect. Iginla has been in the Western Canada area his whole life. Uprooting your whole family, leaving your house behind, your friends, kids leaving their school and friends behind is always hard.

Anyway if he gets his 1000 point somewhere else, I would be ****ing furious.
