If we don't have Bart, we're looking at playing guys like Aaron Johnson.
This is a good point.
Rather than the question being Iginla/Jagr it is really Iginla/Bart.
Turns out the Bruins needed Bart far more than they needed Iginla-granted that's with a ton of hindsight but I think our defense is much better having Bart given the injuries than the offense would be with Iginla.
