See here, here, and this three part series

All flames blogs btw
Boston, as a team, had a much better goal differential. I don't dispute that Iggy is not as defensively minded as he could be. However, Krecji had one of the worst +/-s on his team. I don't know how you can hold him out as some kind of defensive expert.

Iggy remains much more physical than Krecji and capable of scoring far more goals. Even if Iggy has taken a step backwards in his goal scoring ability, he's still much better than Krecji.
