Iginla is what, 32? He's not going to play like he's 25 all his life. And to claim that the Flames altered the play of their best player to suit a transient bum like Cammalleri is a little extreme, don't you think?
Atlanta needs defense much more than in needs scoring. Kovalchuk is good for 45-50 goals, Little for 30 goals, Kozlov + White for 45 goals (each for 20 or more), Armstrong for 20 goals. Not the best offense in the league but hardly anemic. Yeah, obviously they need to upgrade his line, but blindly overpaying for someone coming off a career year isn't the way to do it.
That's a pretty optimistic outlook. I'd love for those players to get those numbers again, but I'm not seeing it with the team they are on now.
