Here are our option at LW.

Iginla - wouldn't be that hard to convince Calgary to cough him up. Also wouldn't have to trade as much for compared to other listed players.

Nash - The crown jewel of columbus. The biggest reason why butts are in seats there. Little to no chance without a big overpayment.

Ryan - The rumors didn't make sense to begin with. The Ducks just got a lot of phone calls from wishful GM's thinking they had a chance to swoop in on a valuable asset since Anaheim is doing terrible. Only available with a very regrettable overpayment.

So as far as top line left wingers go it's pretty obvious that at the deadline we're going to have to go for the best available player, in this case it's Iginla. Bobby Ryan will not be traded no matter how bad the Ducks suck. Simply too much talent to start all over and rebuild. Considering the intention is to go for it this year since this team really could be something special I have no problem trading for Iginla if the price is right.
