In the new NHL all trades need logic and reason. There is no logic nor reason for this trade to go down.

Facts:
-Drury will not move his NTC to go back to Calgary
-Rangers don't have enough $ for this year yet alone next year to carry Iginla without drastically restructuring the team and neither Torts nor Sather want to do that. Plus either Drury or Gaborik have to go back the other way to make this trade work.
-Iginla isn't a hard shooting defenseman or a playmaking center.

The Rangers aren't going to do anything major this trade deadline. If anything, some expiring vet contract like a Cory Stillman (who is a Torts guy) might get brought it to help the PP or a Dman like Babchuk who has a cannon. Other than that, that is it.
