That wasn't a significant player that the Blues received and the main meat of that trade were the picks, with the 1st round pick being the 24th overall pick.
It reinforces what I stated earlier though that the players/prospects that would be in play for Iginla would not be the type that some fans are expecting. The Flames won't be getting star players or high caliber prospects for a rental. Some of the examples cited in that article that the Flames fan posted have absolutely zero bearing on an Iginla trade. Especially those Jeff Carter trades. Such a terrible example. How can you compare the two? One is a rental and the other is in his prime signed to a cap friendly contract.
I tend to agree that it with that. I think there will be 1st pick+(+?) value going back the other way if he's moved, but little chance of an established top 6 forward/top 4defenseman/top prospect.
Not that I think it's likely he'll be moved. We've danced this dance before.
