Bourque... Fleury... Shanahan... Francais... and many many other aging stars were dealt to contenders from teams that were young/rebuilding over the years...
the return is very consistient. there hasnt been alot of vets allowed to enter the last year of their contract recently... so there hasnt been alot of these types of trades.
when there is... the return is still the same. Look what Karberle was worth... Karberle isnt fit to hold Iginla's jock strap on the best day of Karberle's career.
im definitely not much of a flames fan... but they are not being forced to deal iginla with a gun to their head. they will either get a 'normal' return for him or they simply wont bother to move him at all.
i am a bruin fan... as a bruin fan id be prepared to give up a first, a good prospect, and more for him... a lesser offer simply wont even come close to getting the job done.
