Kukla's Korner Hockey

If new Pittsburgh Penguins winger Jarome Iginla signs as a free agent with the Edmonton Oilers this summer, I’ll eat a good portion of the NHL Guide and Record Book, which was 664 pages the last time I looked. I get it that it would be homecoming, a nice storyline. The grandparents are in Edmonton, and there would be a family pull for sure, but would a guy who was a member of the Calgary Flames for 16 years suddenly sign down the road in Edmonton at the first chance he gets? Could he actually do that to his old team? I’ve said it before, I think he’ll move to the Los Angeles Kings with his old coach, Darryl Sutter, for somewhat less than the $7 million he’s making now. It could be $4.5 to $5 million per season for three years.
