thornton @ 6.6/yr or iginla @ 7/yr

Take their contracts into consideration. If you ask 100 people who they would rather have on their team, Joe at 6.6 or
iggy at 7, no question iggy hands down. Even Joe being in a more valuable position (center vs wing) and at say 5.0/yr, Id still take Iggy. Plus, do you really want your highest paid player to be complaining because he found the first contract offer insulting? What does it say to the fans? Iggy is everything to the community! A true leader!

I'd take Iginla at the price but calling him twice the player Thornton is? I believe Iginla is better than Thornton, but it's not like he's worlds ahead of Thornton.

I'd actually take Thornton. I think that he could use a change of scenery though.

I'd take Iginla... but twice the player Thornton is? They're pretty close, but Iginla is a little better.

He's certainly not twice the player, but I have no hesitation in taking Iginla at a mere 400K more.

I wonder if I'll ever enter a voting both to vote for president and see,

"Candidate 1- He's SO much better than the other guy!

Candidate 2"

Interesting way of going about things, PapaBear.

I agree with this but I would still rather have Iginla.

I pick Joe, sorry I didnt choose Iginla ( the great leader )

Was it really necesary to put that little bit of words next to Iginla's name it kind of makes the poll pointless, its like you are trying to make people pick him. If you do a poll do it right and list the names no one needs your 2 cents on the situation I think every one knows what kind of players both are.

I did not vote because I don't think that Iggy is twice the player that Thornton is but I would have choose him.

The reason is simple in the words of Jim Mora:

Iginla, but not by much, I'd say Thornton is a better player, but has never been able to step up and be a dominating force in the playoffs.

One player took his team on his back to the stanley cup, the other hasn't done squat in the playoffs! Iginla by far!

Wow, if Iginla is twice the player that Thornton is, where does the rest of the league rank?

Interesting way of going about things, PapaBear.
If you read newspapers it pretty much was like that in the 2004 US election.

Thornton has become underrated because of the negative media surrounding him. When he is healthy however he is a star and I think he would be a better player than Iginla if he played in a place like Calgary where he was an idol as opposed to a villain.
