I think you're right, but where does the O'Reilly offer sheet come into play? Was that done to play with Iginla, or to start the after-Iginla era?
IF Feaster were to win that legal battle (which I think he would have), it would have been a shrewd move, because it would work in either scenario.

Calgary was still in contention, showing promising glimpses and having a handful of games at hand. The move would have given a much needed center upgrade, which could have sparked the team, or if it failed, it would still be a good piece for the future. The move (if it worked) did have potential to be like the Kessel trade, but Calgary most likely wouldn't have been a top ten pick if they had ROR in the lineup.
