Who knows maybe they get lucky in the next few years without Iginla, or maybe they just need to go for it now.
For how long, 1 year? 2 years? It's not worth the trade off, If we were talking Shae Weber then sure, deal that pick ++++, but we're talking about a 33 (soon to be 44) year old Iginla here. Acquiring him makes that window to win smaller, not bigger, which with the way Boston is built should be what they are trying for.

And again, do you think a team is going to offer more value then a Krejci +Colborne + Bos1st rounder package for Iginla? If so, who? What's your idea of a realistic return. If not, why would Boston throw in a far better pick for good measure?

Answer, they wouldn't.
