I would also be willing to take a little less to move him to the East... but it would depend on how much less in the end.

you definitely want to get the most value for your asset though, all things being equal.

I think that most GMs do try and move players to other conferences in major deals... it doesn't always happen though.

in this case with Iginla... if the Flyers, for example, were willing to come up with a similar offer, I'm sure the organization would rather move him there.... and with a player like Iginla, there are sure to be offers from the East.
All things being equal, yeah. But the premise is silly.
