With the way Iginla has been playing, Kassian is just as likely to get us a cup.
And if we trade Kassian for Iginla, and Iginla doesn't bring us a cup (which is the far more likely scenerio) then we are major losers. And it is a one of the worst trades in franchise history.
And no to trade Iginla here they are looking for key futures, that is what they are looking for from alot of teams but from us they would be looking for our very best.
No, just deal Ballard and Higgins for Iginla + conditional second rounder. You'll still have Kassian.
Kass has the all-round ability, but he doesn't have Iginla's experience, leadership, or clutch ability. When Iggy goes into a big game, he transforms into a different player and can pot big numbers, as well as be a physical force. And he's not too bad in his own end - AV can help work on that aspect.
All I can say is, this is Vancouver's best chance not to miss out on the Cup.
