The plan was to put Jarome Iginla with Crosby all along, but injuries conspired to keep the two superstars separated until the team regained its overall health. For the first time in 2013, the team has no significant injuries and the chemistry between Iggy and Sid becomes more evident by the shift. (Updated 5/11/13).
Jarome Iginla was one of the more frustrating fantasy players in 2011-12, as his usual slow start lasted longer than usual. In the first 23 games of the season, he managed only 12 points and a minus-7 rating during that span. He did turn it around, however, and ended up with 32 goals and 35 assists to end the season, scoring nearly a point a game after the first two months. He also became only the seventh player in NHL history to score at least 30 goals in 11 straight seasons. That being said, the campaign was his worst since 1999-2000, and may signal that the wingers skills are finally diminishing a bit. He still should accumulate 60-70 points and around 25-30 goals, but hes not a first-rounder like he was at one point. (Updated 8/14/12)
