Bruins need a top 9 forward. You should be able to get one for a prospect (not top 5) and a 2nd. I'm not giving up #1's or a top 5 prospect for Iginla, Ryder, Morrow et all.
That would've been a solid and applicable offer 4 years ago. With parity throughout the league, expectations and demands have risen dramatically for rentals with each passing year. What used to be considered a solid offer for a player on a non-expiring contract is now the demand of a rental.

Point is, to get any player, you're likely going to have to pay through the nose.
