Plus, Calgary's got a good base of young players - Backlund, Bouma, Nemisz, Byron, Baertschi, Reinhart, Ferland, Guadreau, Ramage, Wotherspoon, Irving, Brossoit... that will supplement the competitive group of veteran platers that will remain on the main roster.

Calgary's future isn't a bleak as you make it sound.
You cannot possibly think that group (which is rated bottom 5 by everyone from THN to HF btw) is remotely close to Karlsson, Cowen, Lehner, Zibanejad, Silferberg and crew. Everyone except Flames fans agree that that's a terrible group of young players. You know who have a good group of young players? The Oilers and the Senators, the Flames group can't even be mentioned in the same breath as these two.

Also Jarome Iginla is probably gone from the Flames by the end of next year anyways. Either he's traded, or he's leaving as a free agent. There's no way he's going to stay in Calgary unless he doesn't want a cup in his career.
