In exchange for a conditional 2018 4th round pick.

https://www.nhl.com/news/jarome-iginla-traded-to-kings/c-287221204

Colorado is essentially giving him to LA at that price.

I would be concerned that LA is trying to get a little something extra to get into a wild card spot (at our expense), but I don't know if Iginla gives them much of a boost- only 8 goals this year for him. He's not the difference-maker he used to be.

No shots on goal in his first game in a Kings uni.

But its the first game.

As I understand the trade, don't most of the conditions attached to the fourth round pick pretty extreme?

In other words, IIRC reading somewhere its far more likely the conditions aren't meant and the pick just disappears. Essentially Colorado just did him a solid and put him somewhere he could win. I doubt Sakic could get any kind of "actual" return for the guy to a contender. This is probably the best he could do. I don't even know how many teams were even interested. he's had a long career.
