Jarome Iginla's Hunt For Lord Stanley
 
Calculon suggested we make a thread for Iggy's exploits in Pittsburgh (so Flames fans can follow a little easier), I figured I would just make one for his exploits outside of Calgary in general, if he signs elsewhere in the offseason, etc.. (hopefully it's alright as its own thread)


Iginla & The Pittsburgh Penguins



Read today that Iginla's debut with the Pens might be pushed back until Tuesday, hopefully not, not exactly sure when he will arrive and put the jersey on, etc, but will definitely have to get some interviews up and pictures..

DBU 03-29-2013 08:55 AM

If indeed it does get pushed till Tuesday, his Penguins debut will take place against former teammate Robyn Regehr and the Buffalo Sabres.

Flames92 03-29-2013 08:58 AM

Ill definitely be following Iggy for the rest of the season and the playoffs. I hope he's in on saturday im really curious to see how he'll fit in on that line-up.

Janks 03-29-2013 09:42 AM

Hoping he makes his debut soon, so I can watch him and the Pens. It'll be weird seeing him in another uniform to say the least.

TheGaudfather 03-29-2013 10:54 AM

Hope his debut is Tuesday. Tsn2 and no Flames game that night.

I always get weirded out seeing him in anything but a Flames jersey. Even seeing him in an All-Star or Team Canada jersey takes a while to absorb.

Actually your right, that would be the perfect scenario

Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said the team hopes to have an update on Jarome Iginla's immigration status at some point Friday afternoon.

@markhmasters: Dan Bylsma asked if the immigration officials slowing the Iginla process were based in Boston: 'Possibly,' he said with a chuckle

Work visa cleared up, Iginla on plane (connection delayed, there's a shocker!) to Pitt. Whether he plays Sat aft or not still unclear.
Hopefully he's good to go tommorow. I'm curious to who he will play with.

Shockmaster 03-29-2013 06:09 PM

Penguins fan here - I would be shocked if Iginla is playing tomorrow. Considering he's traveling across three time zones, and it is a 1 PM est game against the Islanders, he'd probably be too tired to play. I'd expect him to play on Tuesday against Buffalo.

I'm hoping for tomorrow as well since I'll be missing the game if it's on Tuesday.

They're supposedly going to start Iginla on Malkin wing but will move him up to Crosby's line depending on how Dupuis looks.

Its gona be intersting to see. A PP of:

Iginla-Crosby-Neal
Letang-Malkin

would be absolutely deadly

Wouldn't be surprised if it's Martin instead of Letang. I know Letang is the Norris trophy candidate, but Paul Martin knows how to run a PP from the point and makes better passes.

tmurfin 03-29-2013 06:35 PM

Not sure if its funny or sad that even if he plays on their 3rd line, he'll still have a better center than anyone we have :laugh: :cry:

The rich get richer. That's essentially an Olympic quality set-up.

Shrimper 03-30-2013 09:48 AM

Unlikely he'll play but I hope he does.

No practice no nothing, I love it. You can bet he's eager to play.

LukeD 03-30-2013 10:37 AM

So they're gonna try Iginla on the LW with Malkin and Neal. Innnnnteresting.

To start. Bylsma said as much. But also said at some point Sid would be playing with him. I hope that's where he settles eventually. On Crosby' s line.

tyflames 03-30-2013 11:20 AM

Sounds like Martin and Letang are both out. The penguins will be hurting on D

tmurfin 03-30-2013 11:23 AM

Emotions comin back :( go Iggy! I'll definately be watching a stream
