When Connie's around Iggy goes into the tank for extended periods. I like him, but they (Connie and Iggy) are too close. Kind of like close friends in school who don't accomplish much until you separate them.
I don't think Lombardi's a third line guy unless they give him line mates with wheels. And don't forget Flames are trying to bulk up so they might just want to retain Primeau (if he signs).
Lanks had a preemo season and while I'd like to keep him instead of Connie, he'd draw a greater return in a trade. Lombo might be trade bait too as he would draw a lot of interest from, say, Montreal. He has a lot of upside, so I'd want to keep him. Also, it would hurt as much as it did when Calgary traded Brett Hull. Lombardi's going to be a star.
Also can't forget that Tanguay is a natural center who was converted to a left winger. Yeller's getting long in the tooth as well, but plenty of teams would take him in a heartbeat. If it were up to me, he could stay as long as he likes, but its turning into a numbers game in Calgary. You can't keep them all.
You know it gives the club a lot of options and it might come down to training camp or if Sutter/Keenan see the young guns (Boyd and Taratukhin) making the bigs.
Ditto for Noodles. I like him, but you have to break Kahn or McElhinney in next year.
