Iginla is 35 years old and a shadow of his former self. He will help the Pens because he will be playing with Crosby and Malkin. Chelios was acquired in 1999 and ended up being a very key part of the Wings Cup win in 2002. He was runner up to Lidstrom for the Norris Trophy that season. The Wings are NOT a Cup favourite with Iginla in the line-up. The main need is still for a top pair dman. Until this need is filled, the Wings are an average hockey team capable of making the playoffs but not being good enough to advance very far.
A shadow of his former self Has more points than any Wings' winger and would be second on the Wings in hits this year despite having played fewer games than the Wings and he would be the toughest player we have.
THe Wings' biggest need is a power forward. They don't have one. They get pushed around and to the perimeter and Iggy would solve that issue.
He is going to finish the season with more goals than anybody on the Wings.
