I'm not saying I'm hyped on the idea I was just stating that bringing in someone 'like' an Iginla that is a turn-key contributer in the playoffs and is a UFA at the end of the upcoming season might not be a terrible idea if management thinks we are legit contenders. Obviously any move like this can be a bit of a gamble but most cup winning teams add some pieces (maybe not all as major as Iginla) at the deadline.

Detroit 2007/08 - Brad Stuart
Pittsburgh 2008/09 - Bill Guerin
Boston 2010/11 - Chris Kelly, Rich Peverley, Tomas Kaberle
LA 2011/2012 - Jeff Carter
In 06/07 all we added Brad May. If it aint broke, dont fix it. If we have a hole then we should make a move, but theres no need to make a move for the sake of making a move.
