That's still 3 pretty balanced scoring lines especially if Sven can somewhat get it going. If Iggy has given the green light to Feaster to talk to teams, a GM may not mess around and make a solid offer now to ensure they capture the division. Traditionally though, the deadline drives up the demand with multiple teams bidding so that's why we see so many teams overpay.

I've never been absolute for the Flames to trade Iggy. But this is the first season that I can honestly say we are not dependent on him scoring for us to win games. If the right offer comes along to set us up and move him to a contender, I think we do it no matter what as Iggy may not be back next year anyways.
I would wonder what Iggy would bring to our club if we made the playoffs. After all of these years, all those critics and rumors, you know he'd be hungry to win.
