I would like to liken it to the Bruins acquiring Mark Recchi, who played a few seasons with Boston before hanging them up (and won a Cup with them in the process). If the Kings can get Iginla signed to a one or two year extension, then the Kings probably have to strongly consider him as a legit option.

I'm not keen on Iginla as a rental, but as a one or two year option beyond this season, it makes more sense.
Seems to me that the Flames need help on D and in goal. Could a package centered around Martinez or Muzzin look attractive? Once Greene and/or Mitchell return, a move like this would make some space on the roster.

Martinez + Kozun + pick
Muzzin + pick

for Iginla. Then return Toffoli to Manchester and keep Penner on the third or fourth line. Adding Iginla would really complete the forward lines.
