Iginla has huge trade value. He won't get a poor return.

Consider this trade:

Loktionov, Ellerby and Tangradi for two 5ths and a 7th. Pick up some old THN Future Watch editions. All 3 of these guys were top prospects for their teams at one point.

Everyone overrates their prospects.

Boston or Pittsburgh look like likely destinations if a trade happens.

A trade like Despres, Bennett and 2013 1st is not an overpayment. It's the going rate for a player of Iggy's stature who can still play at a high level.

Add in that Feaster will tell any other GM that the magnitude of trading a franchise player absolutely plays into the dynamics of any deal.

As long as teams are not asked for franchise players i.e Iginla for Seguin, then you will see someone move good prospects for Iggy.
