You'd need better return than that for Iginla.
I don't get these kind of comments.

Does a potential suitor like say, Boston, have a more valuable first rounder? With Iggy they have a very good chance to go deep in the playoffs (even without him, actually).

What other teams are going to rent Iggy that will have high first round picks?

Not many bubble teams are going to essentially unload two first round picks for him.

Even in the rare instance that happens, will Iggy waive his NTC for a bubble team when he could go to a contender? I know Flames fans said he will waive no matter what, but I have my doubts.

The teams willing to pay the price for Iggy (and the ones he will want to go to) will be legit contenders, which makes most of the first round picks Feaster will be offered essentially all in the same ball park.
