Just Kipper. He would bring home a 1st.

JayBow would demand the return the OP stated, but the Flames would have to retain roughly 1.6 million IMO. JayBow at 5million is great value!

I like the idea of a retool-rebuild instead of a scorched-earth-rebuild. If this took place, I would definitely want them to look long and hard into the O'Reilly situation, and shop a couple 1st's. Keep two (ideally the best ones) and see whats out there.

Another target I would look at is Bobby Ryan. Sportsnet was suggesting that may look to trade him for the cap space in retaining Getz and Perry. He would obviously demand a big return, but it would be interesting to look into.

Like your thinking.
