Jarome Iginla has played with the Calgary Flames for all of his 16 years in the NHL and has made no secret of the fact that he wants a Stanley Cup. According to Feaster, he was told of the teams who were in the running for a trade and, as per his contract, he was given a choice as to the team he would be traded to, and he chose the Pens, believing, for some reason, that they would offer him the best opportunity for a Stanley Cup.
The Pens will be unable to re-sign Iginla due to salary constrictions, so this is a one time opportunity. Iggy is placing all of his Easter eggs in one basket.
The Flames get two players who are still in college and are so unheard of that the media is scrambling to find out any information on them. Ben Hanowski and Kenny Agostino. Remember those names. You'll be hearing them a lot in the next few days.
Thanks Iggy. It was a great run.
