In terms of the impact he can have in 1 year, this would be a better acquisition than Jeff Carter.
How many years has it been since Iginla's played in the playoffs? Four? You can fault his team all you want, but Iginla consistently disappears down the stretch, when his team needs him the most.

Basically, when the going gets tough, Iginla is nowhere to be found. I don't want him anywhere near this team, especially for the price we would have to pay for him.
