And why would he then waive his NMC and allow Calgary to deplete the team that he is traded to of some assets? I think the scenario will go down as him being a rental to a team of his choosing, Calgary gets an asset and at the end of the season Iginla re-signs with the Flames. Just my guess.
He has previously said that he would waive for any trade that management thought would improve the team. (Actions speak louder than words of course). If I am wrong and he resigns with the Flames then thats awesome. From everything management and he has said though, I think if he leaves he will be gone for several years at least, sadly.
