It's up to Iginla, not the Calgary Flames. Iginla has said he will take a wait-and-see attitude about an extension and see how the team looks, and how its doing. This could be the reason for the signings of veterans at almost every position on the roster, to give Iginla the impression the Flames believe they can compete. All said and done it is all on Iginla. If he comes out of the gate slowly again, the Flames will likely rack up the losses. Iginla will see the Flames can't compete and will demand a trade at that point. On the other side of the coin, if Iginla comes out hot and the team is winning it might give him incentive to sign an extension. Again, it's all on Iginla and his performance, and the Calgary Flames will have little say in which way that goes.
