Uhhhh....they are affording him RIGHT NOW, so what changes that?

I will be the first to say dont want any one player eating up 20% of a future salary cap, but it seems to be working for this season. IF there is a deal that brings 2 proven players and some futures, then Sutter must look at it...no question.

The money tho...is not an issue right now in Calgary. 2 Million over budget doesn't mean Iginla is the only guy that can be moved to meet that level. In fact 3 or 4 other guys could off set that.

Steen and Kaberle wont fetch Iginla...not even close. If Sutter deals the guy it wont be a salary dump, but a combination of reworking his budget and adding two players to make his team better on the ice...not in the book keepers ledger.
