Lol, that article uses the Jeff Carter trades as a basis for examples as to what a 35+ UFA rental would be. Ridiculous. The Flames are dealing from a position of weakness. Iginla is winding down and not the same player he was even from a year ago. While they may land a mid to low first round pick, the Flames aren't going to get high quality players or prospects in return. Hossa on his prime as a UFA was dealt for a grinder and some prospects who turned into minor leaguers. Another example would be Keith Tkachuk, who was dealt for a minor leaguer and draft picks.
