Button made sure that Iginla was unmarketable when he signed Iginla to the contract he did. While Button was one of the biggest imbiciles I've ever seen work in the NHL he might have stumbled into a sure fire mechanism that makes Iginla a Flame for a good long time.
So basically...

Button the moron, by giving Jarome Iginla that insanely stupid contract, managed to stumble onto a way of keeping Jarome a Flame for a long time?

(Btw, when I say "stupid", I mean "unmovable".)

Did Button plan this, or did he just get lucky?

Oh are there any chances of the Flames NOT qualifying Iggy at 7 mil (his current contract) after this season like Anaheim did with Kariya?
(Not a troll question, but an actual question to Flames' experts.)
