Iginla And Kiprusoff Appear To Be Staying In Calgary, So Who Gets Moved?

from George Johnson of the Calgary Herald,

And if Hartley’s philosophical reputation holds true, that ticking time bomb doesn’t even have a fuse now. Which, reading between the lines, only strengthens the assumption that Iginla will be staying.

As well, old linemate and pal Marty Gelinas has been brought aboard as an assistant coach, to act as a bridge between the War Room and the dressing room. Iginla’s room.

“It’s great to have Geli back,’’ he gushed on the Flames’ official twitter account Friday. “Nobody worked harder both on and off the ice. He’ll be a great mentor for all our players, not just the young guys but the vets, as well.”

So it seems as if the club is going out of its way to accommodate its star-spangled No. 12, has decided to try to re-engage, re-invigorate him; rather than painfully, controversially snip the umbilical cord.

And what of meal-ticket goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff? Well, as Feaster himself acknowledged last season in an illuminating moment of raw honesty: Without 34, is there a position lower than 30th in this league?

So what else of value is there to peddle in Pa.? Mark Giordano? Sorry. Not under threat of an unsolicited rectal exam. For those who haven’t been paying attention, he’s future captain material.
