I am kind of surprised so many people are down on Iginla. Yeah, I know, he is 35...but he scored 75 goals in the past two seasons on an awful team. Imagine what he could do on Gs wing? The league has plenty on 35+ guys who have shown they can still be impact players..and Iginla hasnt missed a game in over 5 seasons, so he seems to be a guy who keeps in shape. Not to mention he is a great two way player, a great leader, and an all around classy guy.

Even if he isnt a 45 goal scorer anymore, would people really have a problem if he came in here, scored at a 30-35 goal pace, brought a veteran presence that helped the young guys, and played a strong 2-way game?

I get people are hesitant trading away future for vets, but the talk on here is that Iginla is some bum that hasnt put together a decent season in 3 years. I personally would love the guy on my team, he represents everything good about the game.
