I'm hoping with this shortened season, getting Iggy engaged in all aspects of the game will get him going earlier. Conditioning hasn't been a problem for him as much as timing, and hopefully the offense can be spread around a little more if Backs is clicking on a scoring line and Cervenka and Hudler return and get going. So Jarome won't have to play all of his 20 mins 5-on-5 and on the PP to shoulder the load.
You decided to find and bump a two year old thread to discuss this? Really?
I'm still against it. We have better players for it. Tanguay, Glencross, Backlund, Jones, Stempniak, Comeau, Jackman, Stajan are probably all better defensively.
And if for no other reason I don't want him on the PK simply because the likelyhood of him being injured blocking a shot goes up exponentially.
