i was merely saying thats what will more than likely be presented in a variety of ways by a variety of teams and all will most likely be turned away becuase this isnt a rental situation where they have to get rid of him or walk him watch
think about it in these terms for a minute... from your GMs perspective...

- you have Thomas having one of the best years any goaltender has every had
- Chara is still performing very well
- you have 5 forwards that could finish with 20+ goals

it really looks like a season wher eyou have a solid chance to win...

now say he is considering Iginla... and does offer the package you suggested... but Montreal offers a similar package with Eller instead of Colborne... if Feaster calls back saying the Habs have offered the same do you not think its possible for Boston to give up the Toronto 1st... not only to ensure they land Iginla... but to make sure Montreal doesn't... because lets be honest there is no way the Bruins want to lose a bidding war to Montreal for Iginla
