It'd probably cost your first and more, but it wouldn't cost Paajarvi, Klefbom, etc. Not with one year left, and not with that year being an inflated cap hit.
Iginla was past his prime.

Hossa was dealt for Danny Heatley, who at the time was a superstar.

Kovalchuk was dealt for Oduya (a 27 year old, in his prime, top 4 d-man), Bergfors (at the time the Devils top prospect), Cormier (another top prospect in the Devils organization), and a 1st. Cormier could have been called a middling prospect...Bergfors was considered can't miss.

Again, I'll ask....give me one example of a 40 goal scorer in his prime dealt for "picks" and "middling prospects".
