He was a beast, I remember game 5 in the 2004 finals his helmet was off and he just kept working to keep the puck in the offensive zone shoots the puck and a rebound to Saprykin.

Remember when he lost the Hart trophy because he was black?

Fitting that he makes the Hall right now.

Iggy was the large part of the reason I became a flames fan. He was an absolute beast during the 04 playoffs and I’m happy that I never got off the bandwagon

If that’s true it would be quite something, although I thought I read somewhere that a French reporter left him off his ballot to give his fellow frenchman Theodore the win

His fight with Beauch in the playoffs really catapulted the Ducks run to the cup in 07.

My worry is that people who don't like him being inducted will say he is only being put in because of Black Lives Matter, as if he didn't earn it.

At least we’ll be able to see who’s opinion doesn’t matter at all.

No brainer. So happy for him.

Umm...it's not like they put Anson Carter in or something. Anybody who has any opinion close to what you're referring to might need a reverse lobotomy.

Why on earth would that be a worry? A player with 600+ goals scored? 1500+ games played, 1300 points. Lets be real. Anyone thinking that is a stone cold idiot to put it kindly.

Iggy earned that spot plain and simple...
I'm curious how they are going to fit his name on the plaque though
