He's been pretty awesome this season. I wish Babs played him more. He's surprised me with his skating ability and decent shot. Funny but it's true, you hate them until they're playing on your team. Besides maybe the Dorsett shot I haven't seen him make any cheap or dirty plays. He can do his job and be physical without dangerously running at guys or hitting from behind. Maybe he's grown up.
This team doesn't need to get older, better to get younger and take a chance on Semin.
Oh please people have been saying that for 10 + years and look we won two cups and made the playoffs every season. If it makes you feel any better I'm sure losing Nick and Brad dropped the average age down a bit.
and you don't "take a chance" on a 6.5mil forward.
Yeah that's not really old for hockey players these days and Iginla doesn't have a history of injuries. I think you can get 4-5 good seasons out of him before it's time to call it quits. A 34 Iginla isn't a 34 Franzen or Bertuzzi.
The stereotypical underachieving soft Russian player or the gritty powerfoward that's scored the most goals of the decade and is hungry for a cup? I'm gonna have to go with Iginla and throw in any prospect that isn't Smith. Iginla + Suter + Parise with Nick taking a major paycut for one more run.. a boy can dream.
