I really don't see how you can argue with that statement. It comes down to saying either the Flames take what they can get or don't trade him, there is absolutely nothing controversial about that statement.
I think it can be put another way. The Flames accept that getting rid of Iggy's contract will not be simple as few teams have the space and last thing Calgary wants back is bad contracts in return....they have a plethora of those right now. So, there are two roads, take what you can get on the market for Jarome and start the rebuilding with those pieces and others you can get from a firesale or continue on the decline with Jarome on board as at the end of his contract, he will not be bringing you anything in return and you will be no further ahead.

I think Jarome deserves a Ray Bourque like trade to give him a legitimate shot at the one thing that will not be happening for him on his current team...a Stanley Cup run with potential of winning it.

Look, some thought Vernon Wells' contract was a move can happen but it won't be for what Flames fans on HFB want in return. GMs have seen what trades like Kovy deal have done to teams.
