Iginla is the heart and soul of the Flames and I don't blame the fan base for wanting top-notch talent in return for him. However, as history has shown time and time again, when a player has a NMC and a small list of teams he'll go to, the value in return is usually disappointing for the home team.

Jerome is a UFA at seasons end and he hasn't signed an extension with his team. Whether Calgary has made him an offer or not we just don't know. The only thing we all know is that he's still unsigned and he's coming up on UFA status.

Can you really create a bidding war between five teams? Or how about three teams? In my opinion you just can't. Hypotheticals aside, teams that are in the hunt for Iginla know that he can test the free agent market at seasons end. Do you give up a blue chip prospect for that uncertainty? Do you give up a young, proven NHL talent for that? Does aquiring Iginla put those particular teams over the top and make them locks for the Cup?
