Would feel more comfortable going after a top 4 defenseman. Wouldn't complain at all to get Iginla though. He is the best luxury we could possibly get.
I'm thinking he will get a renewed sense of energy, at least for this season, in going for a Cup.

That said, I don't want to give up any good prospects up for him. Bernier's going at the end of the season anyway, so yeah throw him in the deal (seeing him 5-6 times a season for the foreseeable future might be a tough pill to swallow, he goes to a Leastern club).

However, we may have no choice in the matter, if we really want Iginla that much.
