Nash trade means similar return for Iginla

Even though the Flames maintain that they aren't interested in trading captain Jarome Iginla, the Calgary Sun suggests such a move might not even make sense in the wake of the Rick Nash trade.

Nash, 28, was traded by Columbus to the New York Rangers yesterday in exchange for forwards Brandon Dubinsky and Artem Anisimov, defenseman Tim Erixon and a 2013 first-round pick.

The Blue Jackets failed to acquire a player with star potential, prompting the Sun to suggest a deal involving Iginla could result in a similar return.

Flames GM Jay Feaster has indicated several times that he is not interest in moving Iginla, despite numerous reports suggesting the team has entertained inquiries.

With one-year left on his contract, the Sun indicates that no team will offer a future star, especially if Iginla isn't signed to a contract extension.

In all 82 games with the Flames this past season, Iginla registered 32 goals and 35 assists for 67 points.
