Exactly. We didn't really miss an opportunity here.

The Flames wanted to deal him to Boston, he went to Pittsburgh. That tells me Iginla was the one who ultimately decided where he went.

Iginla narrowed it down to the Kings, Penguins, and Bruins. So we didn't even make his 3 team list. Now factor in that he didn't even go to the Bruins...one of the teams on his list. Instead he went for a lesser deal to the Penguins. He controlled his destiny...the Hawks had no chance. It looks to me like the Penguins are the only team who stood a chance at all.
