Who is the face of the franchise when Iginla retires? Not Semin, in all likelihood - Holtby? A player to be drafted this year? A current prospect? Backlund? A primary part of Feaster's job is to create that future.
Hannan said something to the tune of members in that dressing room not being committed to winning. Then not long later the other comments about Semin came out. You don't always need things said directly to come to a reasonable conclusion.

As for the face of the franchise when Iginla retires, who knows. But trading Iginla is still a risk no matter how you want to slice it. That is all I was saying. You don't move Iginla for a package that doesn't make complete sense.
