Waking Up in Boston to Jarome Iginla in Pittsburgh

Waking Up in Boston to Jarome Iginla in Pittsburgh

Jarome Iginla is a Boston Bruin–at least that’s what you thought if you went to bed before midnight, much like I did.

In a strange turn of events, he’s not. In case you haven’t already heard, the Penguins swooped in and acquired Iginla in a shocking last minute deal. Iginla chose to waive his no-trade clause for Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and a 13-game winning streak over a team that can’t hold a lead in the 3rd period. Iginla chose to be a supporting cast member rather than the go-to guy in a pivotal game. Iginla wants to win a Stanley Cup, after all.
