Couple of problems

1) Calgary isn't rebuilding, Iginla doesn't want out, and even if one of those two were true, I really don't think they - or we - would run the risk of trading within the division.

2) Kipper is getting up there, yes, but he's also got a few years left in him IMO. It seems they do have at least one or two young goaltenders in the system as well, so I'm not convinced they'd be interested in Schneids.

3) Hodgson may interest them, but his injury history may scare them off.

4) Our picks, if I may be so bold, will likely be late.

5) If Iggy was up for grabs, I suspect at least several teams would be in a bidding war for his services, and I'm not sure the Canucks could match it, even if the whole division thing were a non factor.

Short answer - too many ifs & question marks, too many stipulations. Not happening.
