Voracek was never a third liner. If he played on Philly's third for a brief while it was due to depth and a "getting to know you" period. He's been a top six winger basically since his rookie year.
They were down on him. Voracek was a 3rd liner last year in Philly

Iginla will provide what is needed by a team that is supposed to be competing NOW. You're advocating philly 2 steps back moves...
The people around Calgary say he has already lost a step. He is 36. Not even that close to 40.
