I think it will look more like this

To Pitt: Iginla

To Calgary:

2013 1st
Kennedy
prospect outside of their top 3
conditional 2nd in 2014 if Iginla re-signs or they win the Cup
Why would Pittsburgh give that much up for what is likely a few weeks rental? Iggy gives them a better chance at a cup but they are hardly shoe ins with him, and he does not solve their primary issue which a lot of us think has to do more with Bylsma's system and adjustments than it does with talent. If the first were conditional instead of the second you might get Shero's ear. Otherwise, I would hope that Shero were not that dumb. With Crosby signed for life and only age 25 the window is open for the better part of the coming decade, not just this year.
