Gaborik - Iginla is VG trade ONLY if they can resign Iginla next year for a 2-3 yr deal for lesser $.

Iginla maybe older, but he's in much better physical condition, hardly ever gets injured. The guy is 2x the player Gaborik is physically, plus he fights and provides leadership... Iginla is the full package and fits Tortorella's system better. I think he would be an animal under Tortorella.

when the third moon aligns with saturn, and Gaborik is healthy he's a better scorer, when that doesn't happen, he's a streaky glider that does nothing to impact the game.

The way this season is going for both teams/players Gaborik - Iginla makes too much sense, but ONLY if they can resign Iginla, along with a defensman/bottom six player coming back as well.

We've done deals with Calgary before....
