Iginla Likes Boston

from Tim Wharnsby of CBC,

Three months ago, Chiarelli thought he had a deal with the Calgary Flames to bring Iginla to Boston at the trade deadline. But faced with a decision because of his no-movement clause, Iginla instead chose to join the Pittsburgh Penguins.

We all know how that worked out. The Bruins were bitter about Iginla's decision and took out their fury with an impressive sweep of Iginla and the mighty Penguins in the East final.

Iginla came away impressed. He loved the Bruins brand of play, and let's face it, Iginla fits in better with Boston's blue-collar approach than the Penguins firebrand ways.

So when it became apparent that he was no longer in the Penguins' plans because of their swollen payroll, he asked Meehan to look into the possibility of landing in Boston.

Iginla was smitten with Boston.
