And this is what I see actually happening. We already have (and WILL have) a huge chunk of our cap tied into our long term assets: Sid, Neal, Geno, Letang, and Fleury specifically. I don't see Shero over-committing to another winger unless he turns out to really be worth our while and the long term success of this team (a la Neal for example).

I personally wouldn't mind making a move for Iginla. He may not be the dominant force that he once was, but he's still got plenty of gas left in the tank for a 35 year old. He's an established leader who I think could still easily put up 30+ goals a season for at least another 2-3 years if he's flanking guys like Sid and Geno, or playing on our PP.

What would the Flames be looking for in return? Definitely either a 1st rounder or one of our top prospects (Despres, Morrow, Harrington, Pouliot, or Bennett for example) and possibly a top 4 d-man (Nisky perhaps?).
