Here's the next three cards in my 88-89 OPC Tribute Set. Jarome Iginla makes an appearance with card #5 in the set. Originally drafted by the Dallas Stars, Iginla was traded before ever playing with the Stars for Joe Nieuwendyk, a trade that worked out for both teams. In the 2010-11 season Iginla notched his 1000th career point and in the upcoming 11-12 season, he should get his 500th career goal. I have this feeling that Iginla will take the Ray Bourqure route. A player that had spent his entire career with one team, getting close to the Cup but never winning, gets traded to a contender in his final years for a last shot at a Cup. Good luck, Jarome.
#5 - Jarome Iginla
Mr. Nasty, Chris Pronger, has been around forever it seems. He has come a long way from the babyface Pronger that entered the league in 1993. A battle scared veteran know for his Stanley Cup puck stealing and nasty demeanor, Pronger is the only defenceman to win the Hart Trophy since Booby Orr won back-to-back Hart Trophies in 1971 and 1972. A first ballot HHOF? I think so.
