Iginla by the slimmest of margins. I would not argue with anyone choosing Joe. I gave the slight edge to Iginla because I feel like Iggy in his prime would do anything to win (score fight, hit, pass, sit, whatever), whereas Joe maybe lacked that extra something.

Jarome Iginla.

Pure playmakers are always co-dependent on their teammates. Jumbo Joe has always had a very balanced lineup, which can't be said for Jarome.

Also, Iginla carried his team far into the playoffs, scoring goals, hitting, fighting... Joe Thornton shrugs the team off his shoulders in the playoffs. It's like comparing Iron Man to Tin Man.

Iginla has only ever made it past the first round one time. Just saying.

More so than I believe that Cheechoo was some scrub that Thornton magically carried to 50 goals. The revisionist history in this thread is hilarious.

Iginla put up 50 goal seasons playing with Craig Conroy. The best PP QB he ever had was probably Dion Phaneuf.

If he played on a more balanced team like the Sharks he would have put up way better numbers.

If if if. If Thornton played on a team as deep as the '10 Blackhawks, he'd be wearing a ring right now.

Cheechoo wasn't a scrub. But, he had only 8 goals in 24 games before Thornton showed up. He then scored 48 in his next 58.

People always think SJ has had deep teams that lose because they don't play hard. That isn't true. Their top-6 is always good, but their bottom-6 has sucked year in and year out in the playoffs and is a much bigger reason the Sharks have lost the series they have.

Prime Thornton for me. Not by a huge margin or anything, but I would still pick him comfortably.

Joe. Though both will end up in the HHOF in the end.
