I think folks get enamored with the idea of Iginla on Crosby's wing. I hear it every day here in Pittsburgh. "Sid needs a winger!" Why? He's the best player in the NHL already, and he has unreal chemistry with Kunitz and Dupuis, both of whom are killing it right now. Don't mess with what works. They need another stabilizing presence on the back end. That defensive group took a nose dive when Scuderi left.
I wouldn't be surprised if they look for both a top-4 d-man signed longer than just this season and another winger. The problem is that their 3rd line wingers are not very good. Adding a top-6 winger pushes Dupuis down which is a good thing.
