I don't think Chiarelli has failed as completely as you suggest. When this team is 100% healthy it is a contender. Perhaps not the strongest contender but a contender nonetheless.

From what I can gather in this instance there was nothing Chiarelli could do-apparently he made a better offer than Pittsburgh did but Iginla chose the Penguins.
