You really believe that Hanowski, D'agostino and a 1st was Shero's final offer if it was really a true bidding process?

Plus, the Morrow for Morrow swap, which I think a lot of us found a little perplexing, makes a lot more sense if Shero knew he was going to be getting Iggy dirt cheap.
Shero knew it may be a possibility if Calgary wasn't seriously in the playoff hunt, but you are acting like it was already decided in July. Why wouldn't Calgary just do the deal then if that were the case?

Also, we traded Agostino the forward not D'agostini the defenseman. It wasn't a true bidding war process because Iginla had all the power. He limited the teams and it's not like Boston's reported offer was that much better anyway. Both GM's knew they had a good shot so they made reasonable offers and left it up to Iginla.

You are seriously reaching here.
