Simply adding Iginla won't stop the porous defense they've been playing, nor their weakness down the middle. If Kesler's healthy, the Nucks are a dangerous team, sure, but even then, I'd put teams like the Pens, Hawks, and Bruins as a better contenders for the cup.
They are still contenders just not the favorite, it makes sense for us to trade him to a team that actually needs an offensive RW, Pitts doesn't need anymore offense, Boston doesn't really need offense but they are a better fit.
