I'd imagine a similar return for Iginla.
I get what you're saying but that's not apples for apples. Hossa was 29-30 years of age at the time. The season before he had 100 points. He had 56 points up until the trade that year. Granted he wasnt on pace to match his total the season before but in Pittsburgh's eyes he was still a 100 point player the year before and he would be joining malkin, crosby, staal. And Hossa also had 90+ points the year before the 100 point season.

Iginla is 35 years old. He had 67 points the year before. It's not the same value.
