Goal scorers that aren't willing to sacrifice themselves to score them need a playmaker to help them out. Very few exceptions to this.

My whole point was that Iginla being a perimeter player of recent years is being exposed due to lack of a solid playmaker.
Except I didn't say what he's doing now. I complimented him in an ATD context and you said "Iginla? Do it alone? LAWL!", and considering my compliment was true of him in his prime, it applies in an ATD context, and your response was rude and ignorant, regardless of what you said later.

Further, there's nothing to suggest he's been "exposed". He played well without a playmaker for the better half of a decade and now, on the wrong side of thirty, his goal scoring went down. That suggests it's entirely a matter of his age and not some flaw that existed all along.
