That's your assement of what Iginla's worth is, fair enough. There is no way Sutter trades Iginla for a downgrade in personel and a draft pick.

The deal doesn't make sense for Calgary unless there is a significant return in assets. Iginla maybe cold (starting to heat up) early in the 2003-2004 season but it is always down the stretch that he starts to make his magic. I just don't see Iginla being traded for a draft pick as the major return. That's what Comrie brought and I would say that Iginla's trade value is much higher then Comrie's.
