Plugging in rookies and prospects just makes the team worse, just like we've seen in Edmonton. Add in Kiprusoff declining significantly, and the fact that Calgary is no more a prime UFA destination than Edmonton - it's a rebuild if they move Iginla whether they want it or not.

They very well could be passing Edmonton next year, but fighting over who's worse in the bottom 10 isn't anything to get upset about.
