Not to mention there's this thing called the salary cap, and unless the Flames plan on letting Iginla go, there's no way they can afford almost any one of those guys.
If Iginla re-signs it'll be at a discount. The Flames in addition to Iginla's 7 mil will also have Cervenka's 3.775, and Babchuk's 2.5 coming off the books.
The Flames also, finally have the depth within the organization to fill secondary roles on the cheap. Expect the Flames to be major bidders this off-season.
