How would you justify it as being close? At best Caron and Bartkowski project to be nothing more than depth players at the NHL level. They are essentially throw in's that add no value whatsoever from a Calgary standpoint. Every NHL franchise has those types of prospects in their system and they become redundant incredibly fast.

I can tell you for certain that Calgary would have absolutely no interest in centering a trade for their franchise player around Rich Peverly. It's just not happening.

I also don't think it is fair to use the Bourque trade as a reference due to the fact that it occurred over a decade ago. In addition to that Bourque was also 39 years old at the time (compared to 35 for Iginla) and was having the worst statistical year of his career.

Both of your proposals are met with a resounding no from this Flames fan.
