They ain't purging half of their top prospects to calgary for Iggy, who could be a rental for them based on cap reasons. IMO, there isn't the bidding war Feaster and Calgary thought there would be and that price will come down. No one wants to give up a first round pick in this draft. Who wants to give up their top two prospects along with that first round pick? Very few.
And that's more than enough. Can Chiarelli afford to sit on his hands while one of his biggest competitors to win the cup get better? Can the Hawks watch the Kings put position themselves to repeat while doing nothing?

Of course not.

Sure they do. Spooner and Khokhlachev are terrific prospects.
