would not do that from a Bruins pov...

if that deal were on the table today (can't see why Boston would do it), Calgary would be nuts not to be all over that.

Iggy was great, is still very good, but he is a diminishing asset at this point.

He'll be more and more dependant on playing with an elite playmaker (as opposed to in his prime, where he made average playmakers look like all-stars), and that will make it harder to justify the $$ he's still likely to command on his next contract.

if he has a good/great year, then the flames are likely doing well, which means trading him at the deadline is virtually impossible.

if he's having an average or worse season, and he hasn't signed an extension, Flames would be smart to move him, but then fat chance the return is as good as the one posted here.

first + a much lesser player than Krecj (or a decent prospect) is probably the best the Flames can expect at this point, he should have been extended or traded last year prior to the deadline.

glencross is probably worth a bit more than Knight, but overall the difference is a lot more than a 3rd from Cgy.
