Keeping An Eye On Iginla And Smyth

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet,

They are the same guy, in so many ways.

Jarome Iginla and Ryan Smyth. A northern Alberta kid who captains the Calgary Flames; a Southern Alberta kid playing most of a 1,200-game career with the Edmonton Oilers.

One, the face of the Flames franchise and favourite son of owner Murray Edwards. Another, whose flowing mullet and oversized beak are routinely seen on internet photo shops of Jesus, in a flowing white robe under shining light.

Both would die happy men if they could bring a Stanley Cup to their city. Both took it to a Game 7, but came away with nothing.

Today, at age 35 and 36 respectively, Iginla and Smyth are feeling the identical heat where it hurts the most. At home.
