If pigs were to fly and we acquire Iggy, do you think Burrows would be bumped off the Sedin line?
I believe he's usually around a 55% faceoff man. Him and Ott are probably the 2 best faceoff wingers in the league.

IMO you have to play Iginla with the Sedins. He's a sniper that would thrive on all the offensive zone faceoffs with 2 playmaking linemates. He may not be able to create as much as he did in his prime but the shot is still there. The bodyguard effect would also play into the decision.
