People should stop using stats as a basis for opinion and then use words like proof and fact.
Do you honestly think Brent Sutter told Iginla to cheat offensively? I mean come on people... So when he talked about players like Yzerman and Modano having to change their game as they aged to be more defensively accountable, you think that meant Iginla should be cheating offensively?
