The problem I have with all of this, why isn't it enough to have a strong winger for Iginla? I could never figure out the absolute logic that Sutter has used to defend his approach.

Yeah, except for the fact that I operated under the premise that the Phaneuf trade didn't happen. I, like many fans, wasn't happy about most of the moves Sutter made at the end of the last season and things turned out worse than expected still.

Am I operating on hindsight when I state that if the deadline deals were avoided the Flames would have held on to certain players they traded away or let move on?
