You really need to understand how salary dumps work chump. If you're dumping salary you do so at the start of the season before you pay any of it. You don't wait until half way through the season when you've paid half of it, and the bonus money. If the Flames trade Iginla it will be to better the team, not to dump his salary. They've already paid better than half of it and are moving into the portion of the season where Iginla gets paid less than in the first half. Why trade a player for nothing when you've paid better than half his salary? They've stood by Iginla for this long I suspect that they will stand by him for the remainder of the season, unless someone offers they something unbelievable in return.

BTW... If I were the Flames I would be in discussions with the Lightning for Lecavalier. Dudley wants no part of Iggy's salary, but I'm sure they could make it up to him in other players and such.
