Iginla and Feaster have said Iginla had the option between Boston and Pitts and Iginla said Pitts. I am not getting into this you want to believe that Iginla screwed the Flames or Bruins some how it simply isn't true. Have fun trying to find evidence of this grand conspiracy.
The 'evidence' is in the Bob McCowan Podcasts which have the interview with King.

You're simply a Iginla fan defending your hero.

I'm actually glad the trade didn't go through because I didn't want to lose Koko.

Except that I didn't want Iginla as I think he's well past his prime with nothing left in the tank.

With nothing left in the tank he'd still be 5th on the Bruins in scoring.

With the system the Bruins play and how they roll 4 lines that's doubtful.

All of sudden Iginla has nothing left in the tank and is less valuable than Alex freakin' Khokhlachev. Yup, this reeks sour gripes.

LOL at all the bitter people.

Iginla had a NTC so he could choose where ever he wanted to go. That's the entire point. But it's so much easier to be childish and irrational.

I shouldn't be surprised, since this is HF.

Sure, that's true, but it's a bottom tier one and it's only for 15 games and a playoff run.

A 1st rounder straight up would have been quite a bit at this point.

No one. Iggy chose to go to a better team. Not like I'm upset at seeing Boston get trolled. Twice in one night, in fact.

Would you rather play with Crosby or Malkin or Krejci, Bergeron?

Pretty obvious to me.
This pretty much sums up my opinion.

All you need to know.
Yep. Another absolute blunder by Feaster. They unintentionally gave Iginla the freedom to go wherever he wanted. Bruins fans can be mad at Iginla but he should have never been given the option in the first place. Once that list of teams was produced it should have been put in the form of some legally binding document.

The Flames are the base case of Murphy's law.

He did give a list , no one is disputing that. But it included 4 teams. Then he went back on his word,which he can because his no trade clause but it was not what he said earlier when he allowed Feaster discuss trade with 3 other teams.

What was the point of doing that? if he only wanted to go to Pittsburgh.
CAN ANYONE ANSWER THIS QUESTION?

I can tell you its because he is not a man of his word.

Iginla doesn't allow Feaster to do anything.

Here's what dumb ass Feaster did: rather than say "we have a deal in place with one of the teams on your list, sign the waiver" he instead, knowing full well that there was a possibility of it going the other way, said "choose between the two."

The Bruins didn't get Iginla. Boo ****ing hoo. They're still one of the best teams in the NHL and are no further from the Cup contenders they were last week.

You think Jerome was acting as GM for the team he was being traded from.

That is not what hppened at all , listen to the interview.Feaster thought he had a deal with Boston done , Jerome said no , i want to go to pittsburgh only now, sorry bud.

If he wanted to play in Pittsburgh and Pittsburgh only he should have just said that in the first place.

Making the other teams GMs and his own go through the circus was entirely disingenuous on Jerome's part.

As a 16 year vet he was aware of the process taking place.

I use to be a huge fan of Jerome but I no longer see him as a honorable person.

He screwed over his GM, Boston's GM and the young players Boston had offered in the deal.

If you give a list of teams to your GM you stick to your word.

Ken King who I believe is the President and Ceo of Calgary agreed with Bob McCowen that the idea situation next time is to

Get the player to sign an amendment to his contract stating which teams he would accept and therefore must be held to that contract going forward.

This is how he Screwed over Calgary.

It really that simple.
this says it very well

either he was very wishy washy in his own mind and didn't care that changing his mind did a lot of damage, or he was downright deceitful and dishonest, either way it comes down to Iginla and his word, which seem to be pretty much worthless

There's speculation and then there's being a healthy scratch and having everyone say " 6 hours ago you were a Jarome Iginla yes away from being a Calgary Flame."


I wonder if Iginla really wanted to be dealt. If not, I would have asked for more from Pittsburgh, but who really knows how it truly all went down.

Simple: Feaster should have asked iginla for the list in paper, stating he'd wave his no trade clause to any of the above. What's his face (CGY president) even said it, to start over, he'd ask for this list in writing. Besides, I don't understand why it got to be Iginla's descision. I mean, how did he know Pitts was even in the running? Feaster I guess told him, cause i don't think other gms can talk to players without permission... I would have just told Iginla that the deal could not be made with Pits, they were not an option.
