NHL Trade Rumors: 10 Possible Deals Calgary Flames Could Get For Jarome Iginla

Despite the Calgary Flames impressive weekend of back-to-back wins over the Dallas Stars and Vancouver Canucks, they still sit 14th in the Western Conference.

The Flames are the second oldest team in the league this season, behind only the Red Wings, with an average age of 29.7. Mikael Backlund is the only player on an entry level contract, and the only regular under 26.

Adding to their woes is the severe lack of high end prospects. HockeysFuture.com ranks the Flames dead last in the league for quality of prospects.

Further working against the Flames is that past trades have left them with only one pick in the top 100 in this summer's NHL Entry Draft.

All in all, it's pretty much time for a rebuild in Calgary, and their most valuable asset is captain Jarome Iginla.

Iginla has been the face of not only the franchise, but of the entire city of Calgary for the last decade, and is the Flames all-time leader in games played, goals, and points.

Everyone in Calgary would be sad to see him go, but it's likely in the best interest of both Iggy and the Flames.

Complicating matters is Iginla's contract which has a cap hit of $7 million for two more seasons, and includes a complete no movement clause, but Iginla has said in the past that if he was approached about a trade he would consider it.

So, assuming that Iginla would waive his no movement clause, here are ten possible packages that the Flames could receive in exchange for Iginla.
