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.
We've seen Regier do some great things with Calgary trades, but I think Iginla would have to be a deadline move. Like the Sabres, they're unwilling to do a complete rebuild. Until they're out of the playoff race at least, I think Iginla is in Calgary.
