Things are going from bad to worse for Iginla who is seeing his ice time drop each game.  Last season Iginla averaged over 20 minutes a game but this season Iginla is under 19 minutes a game.  Of the 15 games played already this season Iginla has played 18 minutes or less in five of those games.  Last game Iginla was only on the ice for 16:47 and just four games ago Iginla only played 15:20.
