In response to ErnestoGiove's comment:
Uncofirmed out of Pittsburgh, the Calgary asking price is :
top 4 D prospect, roster player, and draft pick. For now, anyway. He has no movement clause. #pens #flames
... so ...
Hamilton or Krug + <Enter Name Here> + Seventh round
... and come July, he can resign with Calgary.
No way the B's would ever put Hamilton on the table for Iggy. However, the might be willing to move McQuaid, Caron and a pick for him.
Calgary has got to remember that he will be a UFA and he's 35 uears old...actually giving up McQuaid for him seems to be a high price also, unless they could get a D in a separate trade.
McQuaid? Why do people always want to give up "their" trash for somebody elses "treasure". Quader is worth next to nothing to other teams, and may be only looked at for depth. Maybe worth a 4th rnd pick, if that, or a throw-in in a bigger deal. People need to stop overrating their own players.
Calgary needs both NHL ready talent and players that have a proven resume. If they ever come calling, they will ask for players such as Spooner, Knight, Koko, and Krug. If the GM of Calgary ever traded Iginla in a deal involving McQuaid as "the guy" as center-piece he would be fired on the spot.
