I think that's pretty fair. Now if we could be assured he would re-sign then I would be willing to give up a little more but not much.
This is fair value, and equivalent to past trades for this type of player. You can't even compare it to Hossa, as Hossa was in his prime then. Boston would be the most motivated to give a slightly better package though.
Pitt is going to ride Bennett on the 2nd line, meaning that Iggy would not have a spot on the top 6. I think Dupuis is a fixture on that line regular season, though they could mix it up in the playoffs when they need more physical presence.
