That should buy you a lot in the NHL, a top tier player, a player that is a huge threat and compliments your team. Jokinen is in a contract year, has never really proven himself to be a game breaker and has zero chemistry with Iginla. That doesn't mean that a huge number 1 center doesn't have trade value though, in fact Jokinen could garner a lot of interest.
Iginla is not going anywhere let's face it, even though he's lost a step it seems. So what do you do with Jokinen?
Here's a guy I would love to look at!
Marc Savard- currently 5 million and also a UFA but also more like a consistent 90 point player. He had great chemistry with Iginla while in Calgary until Greg Gilbert made him actually work. He's grown since then though.
Could it be possible to poach a young up and comer with cap issues? Like a Mike Richards who is making comparable money but fits into Sutter's system way better. He also used to play for Sutter in Red Deer.
Do the Penguins really need Jared Stall to be their third line center? He makes 4 million and he is capable of lot more than we have seen but unable to show it in the shadow of two of the greatest centers in the league right now.
You could look at guys like Getzlaf and Perry too but the reality is they are locked up long term and will probably not move for a very long time.
The basic fact though is that Conroy is not a long term solution at center for Iginla, he needs a center that is crafty and can score to take the heat off of him and give him room.
If Calgary could score some draft picks that would be nice as well.
