Joking aside, a lot of you guys want more for Iginla than any UFA to be has gotten in return in the history of the league. If that pick is a 1st, that deal is better than what Hossa or Kovalchuk got in return and Iginla is not as good of a player as they were when they got traded. No team is going to give up that for Iginla. The GM would have to be fired if they did.
The only piece of value in that offer is the 1st. Knight and Caron look like they might be fine bottom 6 players (well, Caron, Knight probably won't make the NHL). We have plenty of grinding prospects. We want prospects with top 6 forward or top 4 defence potential. Boychuk is obviously an overpaid cap dump that provides no value to a rebuilding Flames team.

That offer is absolutely terrible for Iginla and Bouwmeester. The 1st + Maatta offer was twice as good.
