What type of player is Iggy?

Postby MarioLives on Thu Mar 28, 2013 6:49 am

I know what he used to be like, how would you describe his play he last 2 years or so?

He's the same player, great leadership, willing to fight, willing to hit, etc. He's just a tad slower than 5 years ago.

Here is a good video to watch - Iginla highlights from last season:



Can't wait to get that right handed shot on the power play.

He'll be a fan favorite here. He does not mind doing the dirty work, and even at his age he is in great shape and will drop the gloves if need be. He can make a pretty pass and check someone into next week, on the same shift. He really is similar to Sid in that he has a grinder mentality but the skill set of a superstar. He has averaged 40 goals over the past five seasons, and during that time he never played with a center even remotely as good a passer as Crosby.

This is just a huge, HUGE acquisition. This guy is a winner and a HOF talent whose game is still intact. And He has hand picked this team to play for, which means he's extremely hungry.

Now Rocco will feel better when he says "Iginla would of buried that"

Oh, and Iggy has averaged .51 goals per game in the playoffs, which is a higher number than #68, #87, and #71. This guy is clutch.
