But I do agree that the whole Iginla's slow starts cost the team wins is unwarranted nonsense. ALL offensive players go through slumps and hot streaks over the course of an 82 game season. Iginla just happens to have his at the beginning. Good teams can absorb one players struggles with others picking up the slack.
All very true. Using blind optimism maybe Cammy can return to superhero form and score 70~ this year.
