One could say he's due the Cup, right?

No because that would mean my team lost.

Don't wanna see Pittsburgh win it anyway.

No, because that means Pittsburgh wins the Cup, and I don't want Pittsburgh to win the Cup.

The Cup is earned by team merit, not individual merit. No individual player "deserves" a Cup. If Iginla won the Cup that would be nice for him, but that doesn't change anything about anyone. Had Ray Bourque retired without a Cup, no one would have thought any less of him.

I want Iginla to win the cup.

I don't want Pittsburgh to win the cup.

I DO NOT WANT Boston to stiff the cup.

It would be funny to watch Krishna's reactions if Pittsburgh wins the cup.

Voted yes.

Nope. want the Habs to win. Team Canada gold medal is a whole other story. If the Habs lose then I'll be rooting for the Pens like I usually do.

You can bet that every Wings fan would use it against him in argument that Lidström was better .

Not this year. I have a ton of respect for Iginla, but it's outweighed by my distaste for the Penguins.

If in Boston, no.

If in Pittsburgh, sure.

However, both being upset early would be far more entertaining, short-term.

Iggy is one of the most respectable players in the game. Nobody should have a problem with Crosby passing him the cup.

If my team drops out of the playoffs and the Penguins are still in it, I'll definitely be rooting for Iggy.

Don't like the pens, like Iginla a lot. Woulda been easier to decide if he went to Boston T_T

But since the question doesn't say win the cup this year, or win the cup with the pens, then yes, I would like him to win the cup sometime in his career.


Just preferably not with the pens.

If he wins that cup with Vancouver, after signing with them in the off-season, then you bet I do.

People shouldn't have thought any less of him, but they would have.

There's a lot of people who simply can't grasp the concept of hockey being a team game.

The worst part is I know some people that don't even give Ray Bourque credit for the cup he won in Colorado, saying that they "gifted" him the cup, and that he wasn't a key player at Colorado for the 00-01 season/postseason.


Never mind the fact that he was second in norris voting and a 1st team all-star in 00-01 in his 22nd season of playing

If the Leafs don't win it I'd love to see Iggy lift the Cup now that I know it won't be in a Bruins uniform.

No thank you. If he went to LA, I wouldn't mind seeing them repeat.

Don't want the Pens or the Bruins to win.

Nobody is "due" a Cup.


Winning as a rental is tainted imo. Means a lot more to win with a team you play with the whole season.

Come at me.

I like Iggy but considering Pitt is my least favorite team in all of sports, no.

If the Canucks are out, 100 percent I'll be cheering for Iggy. Even if he had gone to Boston!!
