Agreed, I think Iginla creates a "win now for Iggy" type of thing that has been unhealthy for the organization. I still doubt he gets moved, but I hope I'm pleasantly surprised. Moving Iginla essentially admits we are changing course. I'd have a different opinion if we were a playoff team at least, but three years and an upcoming 4th should paint a pretty clear picture.

People blamed Brent, but he was a good coach. You just can't get blood from a stone.
