When Lavoie said "big piece", my first thought was the Hawks want Iginla. Would be an excellent chance for him to win it all and could really push the Hawks over the edge, even with Kane and Hossa on the roster.
Bowman has said that he will look to make trades and could target a smaller piece (maybe a fourth line center) and that he doesn't want to trade away anyone significant. So, any trade with the Flames, involving Iginla or not, would probably be for picks/prospects, as Bowman doesn't seem willing to subtract any roster players who have been a part of the team's success this season. Chicago has quite a few good prospects though and I'm sure wouldn't be opposed to giving up picks either, including their first.
