I'm not arguing for Nash over Iginla in the short term. I am merely arguing against the turning away of Nash for a reasonable price because of some HF board misconceived notion that he is overrated. Which doesn't exist amongst the top brass or internally within the NHL and is merely a response to fans on message boards and their opinions.

I agree, for this team, I would rather have Iginla right this very second. Of course, that depends on assets. If we are paying Roster player+ top prospect + 1st ++ for the guy, I would rather have Nash. Iginla would likely not be on this team or performing at an elite pace by the time we are ready to go to the finals, Nash will still be here ready to go.

I disagree with Nash being a passenger though.
