This guy is still a monster, but with just 2 years left on his contract, it would not fit our current organization M.O. to give up a ton of young core assets to acquire him at this time. San Jose would be better off going after him as their cup window is down to 3 years.

Way too much, really. If trading for a scoring winger, the team probably should find one a little younger, as good as Iginla is. He's on the downside of his career.

Besides, isn't he more of a RW? The team needs a LW more than a RW. It seems best not to bring someone in and put them in a position where they are less effective. Better to bring someone in and put them in a position to succeed (i.e. where they play best naturally).

Dubinsky, Boyle, 1st

I love Dubi, but I could part with him for Iginla.

If this was 3 or 4 years ago, sure. I can see Iginla being a top end elite forward for about 4 more seasons before he starts to decline due to his powerforward structure his game adjusted too. I think Dubinsky is a keeper for the Rangers and having center depth may set him off to develop in a Kesler-type production. I'm not counting on it, but if Richards and Gaborik gel with conistent chemistry, this would force opposing team coaches to place their top players against Richards's line, thus freeing up easier matchups for Dubinsky to face. We'll see how he fare's this upcoming season, I hope we lock him up long term.

Brandon Dubinsky = Prototypical 2nd line center on contending team.

Iginla has shown absolutely no signs of slowing down. He is a consummate leader and leaves it all on the ice. This is a guy who hungers for a championship. I would kill to have him on a run.

Just sayin'. If Richards and Gaborik can click i'd seriously think about adding Iginla if he was available. I doubt he is, and I don't think i'd move Dubinsky.

But I would absolutely do good prospect, boyle and a 1st. Calgary probably doesn't.

no disrespect to iginla. but giving up dubi, boyle and a 1st for a 34 year old is nuts for us at this stage...

I say his value is similar to Pronger's. Decent prospect, 2 firsts and a cap dump.

To me it would have to be more like Stepan and MDZ for Salary Dump.
It probably gets done for Stepan and Boyle or Sauer.
