My favorite player of all time.

Where opponents were too cowardly to take off their helmets before a fight, Iginla was a gentleman first.

When the open net was his for the hat trick, Iginla would instead pass to a struggling teammate

Instead of chasing a cup, chasing a pay cheque or chasing a roster that had talent to provide career highs and trophies, Iginla stayed and tried making a struggling franchise into a contender

Instead of asking what an organization can do for me, Iginla asked what can I do for you. Call a free agent on his birthday? My pleasure

Rather than arguing, yelling, or ignoring the endless amounts of questions surrounding his commitment on trade deadline day, Iginla always smiled, always answered.

Classiest player to play the game.
