It also shows very, very little respect to Gabby who, despite having a down year, deserves a lot better than that.

The revolving door days have to end all together.
Yeah, I hear you. I'm not sure I would do the deal either, but there are some good arguments for doing so. Iginla has been much more durable over his career and his style of play fits this team much better than does Gabby's.

Gabby has a full NTC according to capgeek, so it's likely a moot point anyway. Hopefully Wolski's playmaking will help get both him and Gabby going on the scoresheet.
