Now, while Iginla was neither a stranger to fighting nor a reluctant fighter, it wasn’t long before I realized having your highest-paid and highest skilled scorer potentially damaging his $7 million hands punching a helmet is a potential disaster for the Flames. So the Flames went out and acquired Krzysztof Oliwa and Chris Simon. Then Iginla fighting wasn’t as much of a problem anymore. Not coincidentally, Iginla has Simon installed on his opposite wing, Iginla scores 50 goals.
Buying time and space. That’s what I want the IceDogs to do for Thomas, Tomo, Uberti and DiSimone. Having the Dogs’ scorers not have to worry about anything but scoring. For if anyone gets in Thomas or Tomasino’s face, another Dog has a ‘chat’ with the pest. And suddenly the pest isn’t a problem anymore.


Don’t even bother

Thomas could be gone for good if he makes the World Junior team ... and then traded when that tournament ends.

Realistically only a handful of games left to watch Thomas as an Icedog.

His critics love to bash on him, sure his game isn’t perfect. But the Icedogs made a successful selection with that pick ... at least he didn’t turn out to be Brook Hiddink lol
