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.
Exhaustively overvaluing Iginla? That's funny, you are extensively undervaluing his value yourself. No, Iginla is not worth Morrow + 2 1st's, but he is certainly worth FAR more than your proposal suggests.
I don't care how old he is, he is still a top end first line winger. That is what you are paying for, a star player. A third line player, and a B level prospect is an atrocious offer plain and simple.
Trade talks start with atleast one of Morrow/Bennett/Pouliot/Despres/Maata + 1st. If the Penguins are not willing to part with a top five prospect in their organization + a late first round pick then negotiations won't even begin to take place.
And by the way, Iginla ten years ago is arguably the most dominant player in the world. He would be as untouchable as Malkin is today.
