Calgary has no interest in Bishop. He's 26 and is going to be a UFA in one year. He has a whopping total of 31 NHL games played.

Puempel has been sent back to the WHL this year, and he is putting up worse number as an overager. His value is at an all time low.

So it's basically Iginla for:

Late first
A goalie they don't need/want
A failing prospect

How is that as good as it gets? I'd rather try and keep Iginla. A re-signed Iginla, even at half of his peak, is worth far more to the Flames than that package.
