He is only 35 years old and has plenty of productive hockey to be played.
The only thing that does for Iginla is give him insurance against sustaining a career ending injury between now and July 1st.

Otherwise it simply takes away his options, as teams would be lining up for him in free agency. If I were Iginla, I tell Feaster where I'd like to go as a rental, play that out in search for the cup, and then after the season decide if I like that situation enough - team, city, organization etc. - that I will bring my family there for the reminder of my career.
