Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,
Iginla has one year remaining on a deal that will pay him $7-million (U.S.) for the 2007-08 season, at which point he could become an unrestricted free agent. On the open market, a player of Iginla’s stature — tough, smart, physical, a first-rate NHL scorer — could theoretically become the league’s highest-paid player, if a bidding war were to begin.
However, Iginla said his primary goal is to win a championship, not lead the league in dollars earned, and believes that the Flames have as good a chance as any NHL team to do that in the near term.
“Personally, I’d like to stay and I want to win,” said Iginla, who added: “I’m not concerned about being the highest-paid player in the league. I’d like something that would work well for both sides.
“I’m already doing all right (financially),” he continued, with a laugh. “I’m thankful.”
