Who knows maybe they get lucky in the next few years without Iginla, or maybe they just need to go for it now.
Agreed.

Boston needs to make their decision, and I think NOW is the time.

Iginla's contract actually fits Boston quite well, given their current contracts.

Iginla has two years on his deal @ 7 million
Seguin has two years on his deal @ 3.35

When Seguin is due for a raise, Iginla comes off the books and probably re-signs for significantly less.

To BOS: Iginla, Mikkleson (pending RFA)
To CGY: Ryder, Ference, Toronto's 1st.
(the #'s work if done on deadline day)

Lucic - Savard - Iginla
Seguin - Bergeron - Horton
Paille - Krejci - Wheeler
Campbell - Marchand - Recchi
Thornton

Chara - Seidenberg
Boychuk - Stuart
Mikkleson - McQuaid
Kampfer

Thomas
Rask

(apologies if the Bruins lines are way off)
