Aging happens, downtrending happens. Expecting it to not is a bit asinine.

Not saying he's going to be done, washed up, or an anchor (all are ridiculous), but there is higher risk of him not producing to the level he currently is capable of than he currently is.
except Iginla is on pace for about 35 goals and 75 points... and that is after only 2 goals and 8 points in his first 15 games... his pace over the past 33 games would rival that of some of his better seasons
