I understand your concern about his age, but you're talking about a 34 yo (not 36), who netted 43 goals just last year. And it isnt as if he's having a terrible year this year. He's got 12 g, 24 pts on a terrible Calgary team. I just think reuniting Iginla with DS will not only rejuvenate his career but prolong it. I honestly think he's one of those players that can play until he's 39-40 yrs old.

But like I said, I only want him if we're closer to a SC caliber team, which we clearly are not right now.
