Kukla's Korner Hockey

from George Johnson of the Calgary Herald,
The Iginla-mandated lack of options severely handcuffs whatever return the Flames may receive in return, naturally. And very well could, in the final analysis, squelch any deal.
Authentic contenders are not going to take the chance of meddling with chemistry that has put them in that enviable position in the first place. So Calgary is looking at recovering a pick or a prospect or something regarded as a spare piece.
Look, the Flames are never going to pull back what a percentage of this populace - nostalgia being a crazy, powerful, bewitching drug - believes worthy, but depending on what's actually on offer out there, the organization might simply choose to stay the course and allow the player to either stay or move on come July 1st. His choice, his call - and sell it that way.
That'd be infinitely easier than trying to attempt and explain away a beggarly return for a local icon.
