We looked like lost puppies for the early part of last nights game, there were some sparks in the third though. We put over 30 shots on a team in a game for the first time in a while. Our giveaways were just horrible bad game.
I thought I'd chip in too. I've always been a huge Iginla fan and I still can't get over the fact that he's not wearing a Flames jersey anymore. Pro sports and it's dynamics, dammit...
I was finally managed to travel to Calgary last year and see Iginla play and I'm damn glad I did. Bought his jersey this year and I'm damn glad I did. Usually you'd feel bad to get a player's jersey just before he's being traded, but I just feel the complete opposite.
Also, hats off to you Flames fans. You've shown nothing but 100% support to Iginla and his quest for the Cup, even if at the same time it hurts like hell to watch him wear another team's jersey. You're all awesome! God damn I will tear up if I can see Crosby handing the Cup to Iginla...
I still hope he'd return to Calgary couple of seasons later to be part of the team that he made possible to rebuild. That would be amazing to watch.
We are in the middle of a rebuild, I don't think it would be smart to get Iggy back next season.
If Iggy accepts the fact that the team is in a rebuild then I think it would be great. Many players look up to him and our young guys can learn a lot from him. If Iggy gets his cup in Pittsburgh, I wouldn't be surprised if he came back. He has a nice home here and the fans adore him.
