And if we compare timelines, we see the moment Calgary acknowledged their need for a rebuild (more vaguely than the Oilers did) was February 2013 - with the assertion that Iginla was on the trade market.

6 months and counting. Are the Flames going to be a bonafide playoff team in November of 2016?
I agree with your points, but the Flames should have gotten rid of Iginla long before they did, because he had no value left by the time they did trade him.

They also got nada for Kipper, and nothing of value for Regehr.

Dustin Penner was traded for a better package than any of Calgary's "elite core". That should tell us something. Good managers shouldn't be the last people on the planet to figure out declining vets lose value quickly.

All of these players should have been dealt for much more than Calgary received.
