People forget Jarome controls this process, and the team he goes to. So let's put two and two together: He would have a fairly good chance of re-signing with the team he CHOSE to go to. It's wouldn't exactly be a "risk" to the GM acquiring him, since they're obviously on Iginla's top wish-list to begin with. Purely speculation on my part, but come on, even forgetting the re-signing aspect, the guy's market value is 1st + good prospect + decent NHL player. I'd find the argument that finds his value larger than that, more compelling than one that tries to say it's lower.
Happens each and every deadline. Select fans believe it's too risky to trade a first for a rental and that it won't happen. And then firsts are moved for rentals or roster players and the naysayers go away for a while. Then the following season those same select fans come out and say it's too risky to move a first for a rental and that it'll never happen. Some people just don't have the capacity learn evidently.
