That does not mean a one time shot, whether we win it all this year or not.
What was he going to do then? A couple months to 'live the dream' then rejoin the rebuild in Calgary for the next five years?
Anyone with an ounce of sense would have realized this was not a rental.
Yeah, I think we already knew Iggy wants to be here. He arguably forced his trade here since Boston offered more. There is a big difference between being a rental and signing on here for a few years though. It wasn't a concern about him but rather his family and if they would okay the move to a city so far away from Calgary. This news suggests that they would which is good for us.
