Calgary isn't in any sort of cap jam, as they've got their 2012-2013 roster set to go forward, with 23 players under contract and ~$66M spent. Moving Iginla helps Feaster make some moves next off-season without losing him to free agency anyway.

If Buffalo can't get Doan or Ryan, Iginla's an option. I think Regier could land him without doing much to the projected 2013-2014 team.
Ironically, given the close friendship and mutual respect Feaster and Regier have and their past dealings, the Iginla option is probably the most realistic one of happening - assuming that Regier is even interested in going that way or that Feaster is willing to deal Iginla before the trade deadline.
