Jarome Iginla's stature in the city of Calgary is the same around the hockey world.

Thats why the Flames captain was named among the top role models in a poll of NHL players done by the CBC and NHLPA. Iginla was on the list behind Nicklas Lidstrom, Sidney Crosby and Jonathan Toews.

"It's nice, but those are the same polls where you hear youre over-rated," Iginla said with a laugh. "You appreciate the nice things and throw out the bad ones, but you dont think about it too much."
