Iginla is 35, he can play until he's 40. A lot can change in 5 years. Ask any of the recent Stanley Cup winners that and they'll tell you.
I don't believe for a fraction of a second that Iginla wouldn't consider leaving home for a couple of months in order to try and win a Cup. He could always re-sign with the Flames in the offseason and have a better team to play on because of whatever he was traded for.
Moving away for a couple of months doesn't mean you no longer care about your family or community. Even if he moved away for a couple of years doesn't mean he wouldn't come back in the offseason and at the end of his career.
