I know this means a rebuild that the flames clearly don't want, but here are the reasons:
1. The flames are not going to win anything with these two still here, they're simply not good enough around them.
2. Their asset value is dropping every year, get something good now, before it is too late If either has a really poor start to this season, or gets injured, their asset value becomes close to nil.
3. If Iginla truly does want to stay and finish his career in Calgary, then I question his true desire to win, and if winning is not that important do we really want him wearing the "C"? He was consistently the most invisible player on the Flames on most nights last season, especially down the stretch when they really needed their leader to lead.
4. Sven Bartchi is ready to take the mantle of "star player"
5. Start the rebuild now, or wait for another 2-3 years and begin it then. Which would you choose?
Icy tale comrade.
