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.
You realize the cap next season will be higher than when Hossa or Kovalchuk were traded?

In any case, if four teams are interesting in Iginla's services, that's more than enough to spark a bidding war. And given the rumours of LA being very interested in Iginla, it doesn't look like your organization shares your opinion.
