Could You See Iginla Playing For Another Team?

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

Publicly, Iginla says he doesn’t want a change of scenery, and is happy trying to win in Calgary. When he signed his last contract – for five years and $7-million (U.S.) a season – he received a no-trade clause as a sign of faith, that the Flames wanted him here for the duration of his deal and presumably the rest of his career.

Is that changing? Or if it isn’t yet, will it soon? Only Iginla knows for sure. But you can be sure that if the Flames ever put his rights in play, there would be a long line of suitors lining up to make a bid, even if he never contends for another Rocket Richard trophy for the rest of his career. That part of the Iginla equation hasn’t changed. Probably won’t for a good long time either.

Wonder exactly what Duhatschek is implying there?

That there is no chance Inginla can get a scoring title playing for CGY? - - or - -

that there will be a long list of teams interested in his services?
