Careers don't exactly happen by accident. Playoff results often come close to being that.
The question to ask, however, is if Calgary gets knocked out by Vancouver in the first round of '04, does Iginla look like much of a franchise player?*

* Key word being look like. Obviously we all know Iginla was worth his weight in gold. But hockey fans as a group are finnicky about winning.
