It's difficult to just get off a plane and immediately jump on the ice with an entire new team.
1. It's hardly unprecedented to see a trade acquisition on the ice quickly
2. Hockey systems are not all that complicated at all. Most are just variations of each other, Iginla will be aware of them from playing the game for 30 years
3. Iginla is a winger. If he was a d-man, or even center, your point would carry more weight.
Only reason he shouldn't play is of he's not feeling up to it due to long travel. Don't want to risk injury by making him at tired.
