IMO that's a fair deal, if they want TOR 1st then remove the 2 draft picks and CGY would have to send their 1st.
See, now that just sounds like a huge overpayment to me. I honestly know very little to nothing about Colborne but from what I've heard he could be a similar player to Joe Thornton. So to me him and perhaps your Boston 1st would be good value; I don't see the point to adding a player like Blake Wheeler who is young with loads of potential and size, as well as another 2nd rounder. It seems like overkill for a player declining like Iginla. Not that the Bruins shouldn't try to get him. They would be a legit superpower if they acquired him in my opinion.
