Now looks like he deleted the tweet.
Makes sense. Why would Calgary deal for Horton in a two piece package.

The way I see it is that Iginla playing with Crosby or Malkin would be really fun to watch and see, but I think Iginla fits better with the Bruins style of play. Just my opinion. Does Iginla think the Bruins are the better overall team though come playoff time (basing that off the past few years with Pitt's shaky goaltending and defense), or would he be excited about the opportunity to play with 2 unbelievable offensively gifted players? Also rumors are that more Scouts/GMs have inquired about Subban than any other Bruins prospect - so he can't be too bad. I find that interesting though - whose looking for goaltending help? I have heard/read that Calgary would be looking for a goaltender too, so it's kind of interesting to hear on this board that fans are very satisfied with what they have...Also read Calgary would be looking for a top 4 defensive prospect? Interesting that a writer said (I'm sure it's just speculation) that Iginla could be playing his last 2 games. That would would mean he would probably be traded by Monday...kind of interesting that the Bruins play the Canadiens on Wednesday at home..just saying. I know that's just pure talk though.
It's going to be a really interesting/fascinating game of chicken, made only more interesting/fascinating to watch given the emergence of social media. Hasn't been a big TDL fish like Iggy since Hossa, no?
