No one is trading their best prospects for Iginla... and NO ONE is even going to come close to offering a player like Tyler Seguin.

Feaster can either attempt to justify his return for Iginla at the trade deadline (less than everyone will think) OR he can spend an off-season attempting to explain why he didn't get SOMETHING for his aging star after he signs elsewhere with nothing to show.
I'm not saying I would be in favor of such a deal and I'm not arguing against any of the above (I actually agree with everything you said sans the 'no one will trade their best prospects for Iginla') just thinking it out logically. I'm actually on board with you man, I don't want Iginla because of what I think he will cost. If he could be had for Caron and a 2nd, then the deal should've been done yesterday.

A much lesser deal is not only the more likely transaction, but it would also be better for the future continuity of being able to skate a winning team.

Goalie trades very rarely happen in the offseason nevermind at the deadline. Khudobin is worth more as the Bruins back-up than what they are likely to net in return.
