The Flames have no choice but to deal Iginla. There's no alternative solution.

Sutter is coming close to a cash crunch as he is two million over budget, and will soon have to pawn off Iginla to the highest bidder. Other GMs know this, and will be licking their chops at the chance to acquire him for pennies on the dollar.

Since the 1995 Flames version of Joe Nieuwendyk fetched a young first-rounder (Iginla) in the first place, a Toronto offer of Steen for Iginla is more than generous. The Leafs might have to add Darcy Tucker (i.e. a Cory Millen-type toss-in) to seal the deal, in which case Sutter would have to personally thank John Ferguson Jr. for showing mercy.
