The Calgary Flames front-office has ripped a page out of Harvey the Hound’s handbook.

No matter how often they poke, prod and pull your tongue, don’t say anything. Not a word.

When it comes to speculation the Flames are exploring trade possibilities for captain, face-of-the-franchise and soon-to-be unrestricted free-agent Jarome Iginla, the silence is deafening.

After Sunday’s 3-2 victory over the St. Louis Blues at the Saddledome, Flames GM Jay Feaster emerged from the dressing-room area, turned right into a crowd of reporters and then stared at his shoes as he weaved through the crowd.

A few minutes later, Iginla deked around a question about his alleged dossier of approved destinations — the Boston Bruins, the Chicago Blackhawks, the Los Angeles Kings and the Pittsburgh Penguins are apparently the sure-things — by telling a crowd of reporters, “I didn’t say anything about a list.”
