I think there's an implied value in a rental since it carries a pro-rated salary and no commitment for next year. However, I just find it amusing that people think Iginla is such a better option than Gaborik. I hate to be that guy, but it's pretty obvious that because Iginla is such a figure in Canada, and there's such a great story behind the "loyal to Calgary" thing, that he's getting the benefit of the doubt here.
