Going the other way you're looking at a roster player, prospect, and a pick. TK + Dumoulin + 2nd is the type of package you will see. With the draft rules changing, I think you will see 1st's become much more valuable even in weak drafts.

2 premier Pen's D-prospects and 1 (or 2!!!!) 1st's...that is garbage and Shero would never mortgage the future for that return. Not a chance. The Iggy of 10 years ago, probably. 5 years ago, maybe. Today? No.

Given what I've seen Flame's fans wanting in return for Iggy, I believe you are going to be VERY disappointed in what you get in the event he is traded.
I think the better question is what's going on with the drinking water in Pittsburgh to make their fans actually think other teams will just gift them their best wingers for the Penguins trash and spare parts?

If Iginla is traded to the Penguins, not only will their fans be shocked at the price, they'll set the record for the quickest turn around when they start saying they picked up Iginla at a bargain.
