This guy is the Calgary Flames. He's been there since 1996, is their captain, franchise leader in points/goals, and is loved within the community. I don't see a situation where he's even available.
last July amidst the fury of trade rumors, a "source" from our old board along with twitter were stating that the NYR/Calgary were closing in a deal that included Iginla. I think the sticking point was Dubinsky.

Calgary was believed to be flirting with the idea of a rebuild and may be interested in moving their captain in exchange for a youth movement. There's no doubt that ranger management has to pull off some moves to make getting Richards plus another talent happen.
Iginla, wouldn't be the only guy i'd lke to see added to a Richards acquisition, but he's definitely at the top of my list.
