With the way Crosby's playing and given the manner of their first round exit last year, they'll want to do everything they can to make sure they can go on a lengthy run.

And I don't see Gillis putting the best offer on the table; not when he's trading with a division rival. For the Flames to justify seeing Iginla in hated rival's jersey, the price would steep, far steeper then it would be for a team like the Wings or Pens. Gillis on the other hand, isn't going to move significant pieces like Jensen or Schneider with the possibility of them haunting the Nucks down the road. Vancouver's a bad fit trading wise. And so long as they're not the only team on Iginla's list, I don't see him going there.
Toronto and Boston trade, there is no problem in taking the best offer on the table. Pitts isn't going to give up a good defensive prospect + 1st and then try and deal another high end defensive prospect for a defense men that would ruin what they have been building these last few years. Again if Iggy doesn't want to go to Boston then Pitts has no reason to offer up a good deal.
