Feel really bad for you guys.
If the deal was an 11th hour deal done at the deadline, I'd understand.

But picking and choosing is very much the player's right, and if the Flames didn't like the deal, they didn't have to pull the trigger right now. They still have the best part of a week to shop him and get a better package.

Feaster said that they got three offers today during the course of the game - would another GM, unhappy about the deal on the table, not try and leverage what he's getting for a better deal if he doesn't like the one on the table?

There's nothing shady or wrong about this trade at all.

It sucs that Iginla flipped the script last minute, but that's his right, and the Flames didn't have to confirm the deal.
