In what way does it take awhile to pay off for the Flames?

Jarome Iginla: Calgary Flames NHL 82 32 35 67 43 -10
Jordan Eberle: Edmonton Oilers NHL 78 34 42 76 10 4

Flames get the best piece in the deal in both the present and future.

Meanwhile, in return, the Oilers get Roberto Luongo and Jay Bouwmeester who are historically a guaranteed ticket to playoff success and not at all overpaid. If the Oilers wanted either of those two they could be acquired using second tier pieces.

Better value can be found elsewhere if Eberle is being sent the other way.
