It's difficult to just get off a plane and immediately jump on the ice with an entire new team.
This.

Let him familiarize himself with the city, the coaches and his teammates.

Let him have a couple of practices/skates with the team, watch some film, etc.

I'm sure Iginla could play tomorrow if he wanted to, but I think it's a better idea to let him get comfortable first.

Would be awesome to watch him play tomorrow, but I'm guessing that's doubtful with it being an early game. You guys should have heard the standing ovation he received tonight at the Flames game after his video tribute, it would have given you all chills. It lasted the entire commercial break and when the game was supposed to start again the ref(s) had to wait for it to finish before he could drop the puck.

Oh, and a fun fact: Iginla's full name is Jarome Arthur-Leigh Adekunle Tig Junior Elvis Iginla

Go Pens!

Knowing Iginla, he is going to be itching to play if he is there, he's probably dying to get back on the ice. But also knowing Iginla, he will do whatever the team ultimately wishes. If they want him to wait, he will.

Catching this game regardless, I'm stoked

So it is pretty much a given that Iggy won't play? Maybe I won't get up to watch it then and just GCL it later.

Is Fleury in the net for sure? No chance Vokoun gets the start?

Broken toe in the Montreal game, out for 7-10 days (from that time).

first and hopefully only game I will be missing this year.

But as a consolation prize I'm going to Tuesday's game. Iginla's first.

Anyways, Let's Go Pen's!!!

It's difficult to just get off a plane and immediately jump on the ice with an entire new team.
1. It's hardly unprecedented to see a trade acquisition on the ice quickly

2. Hockey systems are not all that complicated at all. Most are just variations of each other, Iginla will be aware of them from playing the game for 30 years

3. Iginla is a winger. If he was a d-man, or even center, your point would carry more weight.

Only reason he shouldn't play is of he's not feeling up to it due to long travel. Don't want to risk injury by making him at tired.

This one was quite easy actually. We played the Isles a week or so ago so I just had to copy that and change a few bits.

Going for 5-2 Pens.

You know, it really is remarkable that this team hasn't earned even a single point from an OT loss.

DB said MAF would be available to play today but didn't say he would start. If i had to guess i would say he will go with TV giving MAF an extra few days off but like i said its just a guess we will find out for sure at about 11am.

Iggy will definitely not play. And i'm as well looking forward to see Morrow playing a second game along Malkin. It did actually work very well against the Jets.

A skeptic may say that it's better for Iggy to start without any of Dan Bylsma's practices under his belt.

In all seriousness, if he's ready to play, then he should play. The streak isn't important. Getting Iggy acclimated to the team is. And, the sooner he gets in there, the sooner he gets to where he is supposed to wind up...on Crosby's line. Let Bylsma have his little fun for a while, and then eventually even he will figure this one out.

Have they announced any roster moves yet? Or will Iginla be "inactive" for one more game?
