Iginla AT MOST is worth a 2nd from LA, next year's. We'd be doing Calgary and Iginla a favor letting him step in to our run this year where our 15 forwards (four lines and three reserves) are set. Our forward corps is deep and full of quality with excellent chemistry.

If Iginla will be traded, it will be to a very short list of contenders. Of those teams, LA needs him the least.

How on earth can you stretch Calgary giving away one of their best trading assets for literally nothing as beneficial to the Flames?

There's got to be something funny in the LA drinking water with so many of their fans thinking they can get a player like Iginla for free.
