We wouldn't be able to acquire a '06-'07 Jarome Iginla. Nobody would. The point isn't whether his best days are behind him, the point is that the days ahead of him are almost certainly much better than anything Sid has. Last year he was a top 10 RW in goals and points.

I don't see any valid reason to ignore a long, impressive track record accomplished with nothing resembling a scoring line center, never mind an elite scoring line center.
