That's kind of my point. There is no lottery pick in play. Toronto's pick probably won't be a lottery pick, and it may not even be top 5. I just don't see Toronto falling behind Edm, NYI, or the NJD. As such, there pick is 4th at worst, which only yields a 10% chance at a #1 pick. Toronto, who has been playing better lately IMO, probably will see themselves finish around 23rd, which gives them a 0% chance of that #1 pick.
Also, when was the last time a player of Iginla's calibre was moved, without the teams hand being forced.
