As if Jarome Iginla's achievement of scoring 500 goals — and more than 1,000 points — for the Calgary Flames wasn't impressive enough.

Consider that from the start of the 1996-97 season to now, only one other player, Daymond Langkow, has scored more than 100 goals for the Flames in all that time (123 over six seasons).

Chew on that for a while.

OK, so now does anybody doubt whether Iginla has forever been on an island in leading the Flames?

Sure, nobody has played close to as many games as Iginla for the Flames over that time, but nobody other than Theoren Fleury can grasp what it's been like for Iginla to be the main man during all those years.
