The overall point is it doesn't mean anything yet people will take it too far then get angry when something, that wasn't ever promised to them mind you, doesn't come.
Ren Lavoie is a pretty good source. If he was willing to put that tweet up there's probably something to it, he's a reliable guy who doesn't spout bs like Rob Rossi.

Doesn't mean Iggy is re-signing here but it's a damned good sign.

The night we got Iggy, when I was going through everyone's twitter feeds, Lavoie is the *ONLY* person who got it right the entire time. He didn't scoop anyone on the Pens, but he kept saying he wasn't a Bruin.

Orpik+TK gone = Iggy + elc prospect.

I don't Iggy expects to get $7mil. He can't...he won't. $5mil is more realistic.

I could even see Iginla accepting a deal in the $4.5m range, depending on term. I'll be quite shocked if he gets anything about $5m from Shero, just because Shero is realistic in what he can afford long-term from any of these guys we acquired. I don't think the guy values money over chance to win at this point.

At his farewell press conference in Calgary, Iginla referenced to when you win "one", you want to keep winning more Cups. So even if we succeed this season in our goal, I think that only likens the chance he would re-sign.

You're right. I believe he said "Don't shoot the messenger but...."

He was also my go to for info during the lockout. In my mind, he's the most reliable guy out there.
