As someone watching Mark Recchi play, I think saying Iginla will retire in 3 years is ridiculous.

I do not expect a 40+ Mark Recchi though to go and put out 100+ point seasons like a 20 something year old Mark Recchi did. And while Iginla isn't near 40, I still wouldn't expect him to produce the same as a prime Iginla.

Aging happens, downtrending happens. Expecting it to not is a bit asinine.

Not saying he's going to be done, washed up, or an anchor (all are ridiculous), but there is higher risk of him not producing to the level he currently is capable of than he currently is.
