This is the perfect and absolute right time to move him. His value will never be higher and the return will never be better.

I acknowledge that if the Flames trade him there chances for the playoffs are very low.

But this is a 48 game season and teams that maybe on the bubble to get in the playoffs will be desperate to acquire talent. Also Iggy is still playing at an elite level but regressing every year, his production will only go down and reduce the return.

I believe that many teams have a good stable of prospects in which theyd be willing to part with. Also the 2013 draft is supposedly deep, if they could get a 1st rounder they could get a very good player. And they will pick better with a reduction in point totals.

I could see a good 2nd liner (or good prospect) and a 1st and some other mix of picks/prospects that arent as significant

I personally see him going to the Pens for Despres,1st,3rd
