Would the Flames grant teams the permission to speak with Iginla about a potential contract extension? I would think that if they permitted clubs to do so that it could increase the interest and the offers would become more attractive from clubs, knowing that Iginla would be willing to sign an extension.

It increases his value if teams know that they can at least get more than 10-12 games out of Iginla. Look at how much mileage the Avs got out of Ray Bourque or more recently the Bruins with Mark Recchi. They were rentals who lasted more than one season with the club they were dealt to, and they went on to win a Cup.
