2. I think his leadership off the ice, and his influence in the room would be infinitely bigger than anything Perry could bring in that regard, and I also think Iginla could match Perry stat for stat over the course of a season here for less money.

I still wouldn't give up a king's ransom for Iginla. I just don't think we have to do that at this point. If Iginla is on the move, I'll be real interested to hear what kind of packages are being offered up, as I'm sure a young-ish team will be willing to part with a ton to get him, and pay him anything he wants.
Not to mention Iginla would bring that added motivation of winning a Cup for an all time great ala Bourque in Colorado. That can't hurt IMO!
