I don't think there is any way Calgary makes this deal. For one, they are one of the hottest teams in the league, next to probably only Toronto, so there is no need to be doing anything. Second, Iginla looks like he's starting to heat up. He's finally burying his chances and is getting support from alot of players. Bottom line is that Calgary doesn't upgrade in any way, shape or form. And the salary of Iginla isn't much of an issue when they are taking on a hugely overpaid Keith Primeau in the deal. The UFA issue of Conroy is a non factor seeing as Primeau is anyway as well, at least I think so. So it boils down to Calgary giving up the 2 better players which makes absolutely no sense at all.
