I think now is the perfect time to trade Iginla, both for his sake and ours. Let's think about this:

We're a bubble team. Even if we miraculously manage to squeak into eight we'll get demolished by Vancouver. Bute if we trade Iginla to a contender (say Pittsburgh) he has two or three very solid attempts to win the cup.

Second, this is the first time in a long time I've been impressed with our scoring depth. Everyone is chipping in and Iginla doesn't need to carry the offensive burden. We're still piss poor at center but we have lots of firepower on the wings and plenty of guys in the pipeline who can step in now, and other who'll be ready in a few years.

I really hope he asks for a trade; I think it's time to part ways. He'll always have a great legacy in this city and organization. I would hate to see him fade as a player on a mediocre team.
