Sources say the Calgary Flames are moving very cautiously in trade talks involving their captain, Jarome Iginla.
The Boston Bruins have been in constant communication with the Flames and a variety of assets have been considered, however, more work is required for a deal to take shape.
As keen on Iginla as the Bruins are, Boston is believed to be targeting as many as four other forwards, including San Jose's Ryane Clowe, in the event the Bruins can't reach an agreement with Calgary.
Also noteworthy is the fact that three of the five players high on Boston's list have term remaining on their contracts and are not rentals, as both Iginla and Clowe as pending unrestricted free agents could very well be.
Clearly, the Bruins are considering other options and undoubtedly Calgary is doing the same with Chicago, Los Angeles and perhaps, Pittsburgh still in the Iginla hunt.
There are a number of profile names on the "players in play" list, but Jarome Iginla remains at the top because of his status in the game and the attention of a potential trade will draw up to the April 3rd trade deadline.
