from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
Forget the rebuild.
Although many had predicted this offseason might finally see the departure of captain Jarome Iginla and/or goalie Miikka Kiprusoff in an attempt to reset the franchise, that doesn’t appear likely to happen.
“We’re not tearing it down,” Flames GM Jay Feaster told ESPN.com on the phone from Calgary.
Whether or not Jay Bouwmeester remains a Flame remains to be seen. The Flames, according to rival executives, aren’t really shopping him as much as listening to offers.
If a deal doesn’t come along for Bouwmeester (two more seasons at $6.68 million per) that materially improves the team, my guess is that Feaster can live with a top four consisting of Bouwmeester, Wideman, Mark Giordano and Chris Butler. Not too shabby.
