Could Iginla have been a Sabre?

This is a question for any longtime Sabre fans with "insider connections".

Back in 2001 at the trade deadline, one of the names who kept popping up in rumours was Mike Peca, who was sitting out that season and looked like he wouldn`t play for Buffalo again due to bad blood between him and Sabre management.

Anyways one of the biggest rumours at the deadline was Peca to Calgary for Iginla, but supposedly never happened because Calgary wanted a #3 defenceman thrown in and Darcy didn`t want to give up anything extra. Was there any truth to this, or was it just a case of the media getting away with their own imaginary scenarios.

It may seem far-fetched now, but Jarome`s big breakout scoring champ season didn`t happen until the following year and Peca was regarded as the top defensive forward in the NHL at the time.

Yes,Jim Kelley reported this in The Buffalo News that year,but I thought it didn't happen because Regier wanted a defenseman added in...

Iginla would have come and gone if this would have happened, never scoring more than 25-30 in a sabres uni.

The version I remembered was that both Calgary and Buffalo wanted sweetener in the deal and neither side would budge and it fell apart from there.
