If you'd read the rest of my post, you'd see that asking price is based off similar returns for high profile players who were UFA at seasons end. Iginla is still a high profile player and similar rentals fetched the same, so no, any GM asking that wouldn't be an idiot and, based on how the Hossa and Kovalchuk trades panned out for Pittsburgh and New Jersey respectively, no, they wouldn't necessarily be idiots to pay that either.
