from Geroge Johnson at ESPN,
Both of Sutter’s star men, Jarome Iginla and Miikka Kiprusoff, are scheduled to become unrestricted free agents as of July 1, 2008.
Iginla is paid handsomely at $7 million this season, but he probably will be seeking Jaromir Jagr-type money ($8 million range) in his next deal. He’ll be 31. His agent, Don Meehan, just happens to be Smyth’s agent, too. Meehan fully understands what his client is worth in goals, leadership and good-guy profile.
Iginla, believe it or not, means more to the Flames than Smyth does, uh, did, to the Oilers. By the time Meehan and Sutter get down to hammering out a new deal for the Calgary captain, Iginla will be threatening all Theo Fleury’s career Oilers offensive records. His is unquestionably the face of the franchise. He wears the “C.”
read on... Smyth the main topic, then Flames talk…
