A witch cursed him and turned him back into a NHL rookie who loses the puck, and refuses to drive the net.
That's something I've noticed when I watch your guys play their late games. It's a shame because he's yet another one of those guys who could be so much more if he wanted to. Far as I'm concerned, he's probably THE best skater in the league.
My take is that while it's likely that he'll break out next year, this team is a cup contender now. If the right deal comes along, we can afford to give up on some of our young, promising players if it means winning now.
Nieuwendyk for Iginla might be an example. Dallas got a Conn Smyth winner, while Calgary got back a future captain. It's a bit painful from Dallas' perspective to give up on Iginla, but then again they won a cup.
