Who knows maybe they get lucky in the next few years without Iginla, or maybe they just need to go for it now.
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
Chara - Seidenberg
Boychuk - Stuart
Mikkleson - McQuaid
(apologies if the Bruins lines are way off)
