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.
Joe Colborne plays the same style as Thornton, but I doubt you'll see Colborne putting up similar numbers to him.

I don't think it's an overpayment at all, Iginla is still one of the best wingers in that game.
