Cause he has grit in spades. He keeps himself in great shape but playing for that organization for 10 years+ would bring any players game down. With a SC at stake, he would turn back the clock, imo

The price tag we hear is just Flames dreaming, and I wholeheartedly agree we shouldn't even consider acquiring him at the price we often hear but I reckon those demands will be a lot less by April 3 if they are outside of a PO spot. I seriously doubt that Iggy will sign with Calgary over the summer, hence, if Flames are serious about re-building they will move him before then (for the best deal they can find).
