Supposing this rumour has any basis -- and it might -- Gauthier would likely be involved, if only to make some room for one of the defensemen going the other way.
Trying to imagine a "fair" deal for Iginla and Gauthier is somewhat difficult.
I think that Zednik has to be part of the deal.
But I would be very reluctant to deal Markov. He will eventually be recognized as a league-wide top-two defenceman. He is offensively creative and reliable defensively, now lining up against the opposing team's top line. And he is young, improving, and sensibly salaried.
If Markov were to be dealt, I would not add much more than a so-so prospect or depth player or lower mid-round draft pick. In my estimation, Markov is really that valuable.
Somewhat similar to Munchausen, I offer Zednik, Garon, Hainsey or Hossa, and any one of: Sundstrom, Milroy, 4th round draft pick.
