Interestingly enough, people have been saying that since before Savard was in Atlanta. Until the second half of this past year it's never been true. And he's been played with every scrub and tweener DW could muster. I have strong reservations about Peverly playing as well next year as he did this past season.
It's interesting that you say that Cammy has "turned Iginla into a setup man". First of all Iginla's numbers aren't much different than his usual numbers other than the fact that he got more assists than goals for the 3rd time this century. Whereas Cammalleri seems to have been able to eke out more assists than goals every year of his career. Maybe Iginla has become a more complete player when all the weight wasn't on his shoulders to score every time he got the puck. I bet he loved having someone on his line that could score more than 20 goals.
