There's got to be something funny in the LA drinking water with so many of their fans thinking they can get a player like Iginla for free.
We're not asking for him. I'm not saying Calgary should settle for nothing either. I'm saying that we can't offer much for him as the value to our team isn't there. And the fact that you must send him to a contender will limit his value IF you trade him.

There are literally only four teams that qualify as true contenders from each conference.

Also, the return can't be compared to guys like Hossa and past deadline deals because the lower the cap goes, the more picks and prospects are worth.
