Most fans aren't stupid.
Both situations are bad, but trading him for nothing is worse.

At least if he walks the decision to go is purely Iginla's.

If it was a pure business decision then yeah you take the best deal you can. But it isn't - you have to cater to the fan base too.

You can't trade a guy like Iginla for something like a low 2nd round pick. If that's the best offer you get then you keep him.
