So why do you have it? Are you afraid of being waived instead of traded?
You'd have to ask Iginla. He's the one who said it.

Most likely it's job security. Three years ago, he probably wouldn't waive his NMC with a young family. Now, he knows he probably has the opportunity to come back to Calgary next season if he wants to, but he may waive his NMC to 1) Help himself win a cup, and 2) help the team he might be coming back to.
