Or even split them up and put Duchene with Stewart and Bourque? I would do it.....It's not great for a 10 year plan but it's great for a 5 year plan....and that's ok with me. I'm in it to win it. The reason I don't like Porter in the deal is because I believe he's our 3rd line center...

And just FYI in about 2 years Hishon could step into that #3 role.
Sutter would have to be clinically insane to do a trade like this. If they are rebuilding they would hang on to Bourque and Erixsson to start with. So it's a weird hypothetical situation as it is.

I do think the question of what Iginla would bring in a trade is interesting. There aren't all that many teams that will challenge for a cup with a lot of cap space. Perhaps something involving Jordan Staal?
