This.

Everyone gets the sentiment surrounding Iginla in Calgary. There is an absolute here though and that is a player who is entering a time in his career where traditionally players start to slow down considerably. Yes, there are intangibles, but those same intangibles can be found elsewhere for a lesser price (Morrow).

Let's think about the current circumstances a year from now... Would anyone really give up a top prospect, a roster player and a first for a 37 year old?

Whatever the case, Calgary will never get more for Jarome Iginla than they will right now. They should be in a complete fire sale mode and begin posturing themselves to land a top the draft order in the McDavid draft.
