2011 first = looking to be very late first at this point.
Zach Hamill = He is 22 years old now and has only ever played 1 NHL game. Has 3 goals in Providence this year. He may never be a regular NHL player
Jamie Arniel = See above. I would say he has a slightly better chance of making the NHL, but would be stretching it say he is a top 6 guy, and he doesn't really have the size to play in the Flames bottom 6.
Andrew Bodnarchuk = How many players like this do the Flames already have in their system? The answer is many. He would never crack through the Flames depth at defence.

So basically....the Flames trade Iginla for a bunch of mediocre prospects. Yeah that's what the Flames need more of...

The Flames would be much better off keeping Iginla.
