The one point I think Hradek should stress is that Clarke's comments discounting his alleged interest (at the time) in Comrie were made in response to the rumor that Handzus would go the other way. It's a small point, but when put in that context, removes the "conspiracy theory" he uses to form the Iginla speculation. He missed the boat on that one, but I don't think it's malicous because he's dealing with second-hand information.
I don't know that Clarke wouldn't be interested in somebody like Iginla, but he would be rather expensive in terms of players/prospects and money. In addition, I think a more inappropriate time couldn't exist for a rumor regarding Iginla to arise. That club is tearing up the league right now, and Iginla looks good. I'm not buying.
Don't respond to fans of other teams stopping by clutter up the board yet articulating nothing valuable toward the discussion. It's a waste of energy. Just let it go away.
