He has, has he? Then why the never ending search for that elusive number one center? Why the continual recycling of players to play with Iggy? That is a pretty strong indicator that the team believes Iginla is capable of more, not that he elevates the game of others. Iginla was a great player, and still remains a very good scorer, but he was hardly the player who elevated the game of others. That is part of the leadership conundrum for the team. The guy that is supposed to elevate the performance of the team has shown he is incapable of doing just that and it shows in the results and disappointments.
