That's not what collusion is.
He could have even agreed to an extension in principle yesterday afternoon with the Flames. They owned his rights and were free to discuss all possibilities with him.
Boston fans are so butt hurt over this yet they were all laughing when Heatley nixed a trade to Edmonton.
If I had a NTC and had the choice between BOS, and playing with the two best players in the world(Iggy has never had a good centre).....gee tough choice

That's probably a better deal than what they received (and by probably, I mean definitely )

My guess is with Iggy's NMC is that it was limited to four teams. I never saw DET being mentioned until today. Just because there were four teams listed doesn't mean that he didn't have a preference for anything than Pittsburgh.

A hypothetical example: maybe Calgary says "we're trading! everything must go!" and are looking for offers on all players including Iginla. Iginla's first choice is Pittsburgh (of course.) However, maybe Pittsburgh decides that with the extra money spent on Morrow and Murray that they were not interested in Iginla. Iginla would then choose between the remaining teams within his NMC.

I'm curious, and I dont want to search the threads for the answer, are flames fans happier with Agostino+Hanowski+1st than Koko+Bartkowski+1st?

I can't even believe the illogical drivel and hate coming from Boston fans right now. It's not even justifiable.

If Iggy had gone to that rat pack of diving meat puppets in Boston I would have puked everywhere. I literally hated him for the half hour I thought he was a Bruin (thanks Wardo your cred is -1 now) but when I heard he went to Pitts I am like a kid on Christmas morning. Such a better choice for Iggy especially with the return being so minimal. He now has a good chance of playing in Sochi not to mention Crosby finally has a winger . Iggy you legend you.

A bit of a mix.

I think the ones who are happier with the Boston deal are anti-Feaster to begin with and haven't looked at the details.

The conditional first was garbage. Bartkowski adds absolutely nothing to the Flames. Koko is a massive flight risk. There are currently 22 Russian players left in the NHL. Koko is exactly the type of player who takes a big contract in the KHL after struggling to secure a top 6 role in the NHL.

Listening to Shero speak about it, I think the Pens played this perfectly. They let Flames try to negotiate the best deal (and Flames apparently wanted the Boston deal the most) but recognized that ultimately, it was Iggy's call, not Feaster's or the Flames. So I think they, through players like Crosby (as I don't think Shero or Mario would have been permitted to speak to him, unless the Flames had granted the permission - which they may have) spoke with Iggy and convinced him that Pittsburgh was where he wanted to go, 100%. At that point, Pittsburgh has a ton of leverage and Flames have no choice but to accept. Pittsburgh barely had to negotiate with the Flames once they had convinced Iggy that Pitt was where he wanted to be.

At least Iggy decided to go to a REAL contender in the end. Not a Flames fan, but even I was getting a bit choked up watching that press conference. Living in this city and meeting him once, I know what he meant to the fans here.

last year the Flyers coach said something to the effect of "when you have [Giroux] the best player in the world..." after their series with the Pens

No, but who gives a ****? Jarome has earned the right not to be treated like a commodity we are simply trying to squeeze incremental value out of. He feels more comfortable in Pittsburgh, let him go there. Neither package are going to replace him, so why worry about marginal differences right now?

Or you could provide evidence of your claim. I've read the thread. It's mostly angry posts, and correct assessments. Again. Such as?
