Lose Regehr, Bo, even Borque too but there is no asset on this team as valuable as Iggy! As much as i love Kipper, i would trade him too for the future of the flames.

I really think this is just an off season for the Flames. Hell, look at the Canucks in 2006/2007, they didnt even make the playoffs but are still a powerhouse of a team. I say give it till next season and see what these guys are really made of. It's not as bad as everyone potrays it to be
So you want to trade these guys to rebuild, and you think that by next year the Flames will be be a power house team? Who is going to be left on their roster to put them in that position, all the guys and prospects they pickup? Going into a rebuild requires a minimum of 3 years to turn it around unless you have quality guys in your system like Philly had a few years back. The Flames do not have these types of players in their system.

I think you are unsure if you want a rebuild or not. But I am with you in that I am unsure if I want to Iggy go. I know if we rebuild he should be dealt, I just cannot picture him playing for another team.
