If Iginla can't be had by Pittsburgh, I could see Marleau going over there. He's signed through next season, and would make a fantastic winger for Pittsburgh. They probably would not want any of the defender prospects. Maybe like a 1st + TK + lower level prospect.
Boyle back to Tampa Bay for a potential run by them. Get a 1st + Connolly + another forward prospect. Thornton to Toronto for some stuff.
I think they could definitely do it if they wanted, but I doubt they will. Having a top-6 that had Couture, Pavelski, and Havlat as the top three players is kind of scary, IMO.
