If this rumour has legs, I would see a Despres + mid-level prospect for Iginla making sense for both teams. Despres has excellent potential and has progressed well since being drafted.

That being said, I could see Pittsburgh being hesitant to trade Despres but Calgary surely won't settle for anything less or a ''quantity'' package of lesser prospects/warm bodies/picks.

It dosen't make sense for Pittsburgh to trade Staal for Iginla, Pens wouldn't be able to match up well againts deep line-ups like Boston and Philadelphia who can role at least 3 lines againts any team in the league. Pens need Staal even with Crosby in the line-up.
This is most likely just a rumour, but yes, no way Pittsburgh trades Staal for the 34 year old Iginla unless Calgary adds.

Maybe something like Iginla and Stajan for Despres and Kennedy.
