It’s quite another to hear it from a longtime teammate who went to the Stanley Cup final with Iginla and saw the most prolific Calgary Flames player in franchise history at his very best.
Asked for his honest assessment of the Flames captain 10 games into yet another horrid start for him, the retired defenceman-turned-radio host Rhett Warrener did his best to be “intellectually honest,” as GM Jay Feaster encourages people to be.
And the truth, as he sees it, won’t be easy for his pal to hear.
