    @Leaf_fan I get the feeling Feaster and the Flames knew that whatever team they traded Iginla too would probably be the odds on favorite to win the cup. And possibly took that statement from Chiarelli this morning about Subban as a direct slight thru the media, or were upset about the way a possible Iginla trade was handled in Boston with Media leaks.

    I hate to speculate because there’s other possibilities like Iginla was steering the ship the whole time and wanted only to go to PIT or something like that, but like u i get the feeling something else behind the scenes is going on here.

    Iginla made the final call which sucks, but I don’t blame him

    this is pretty crazy.. i watched both mtl-bos and col-cal last night and all they could talk about was iginla to boston…

    i think tsn via aaron ward botched the announcement of iginla to boston without confirming it…

    pretty dramatic events
