For about five hours on Wednesday, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli believed he had just landed the most-coveted player on the trade market, Jarome Iginla.
At around 12 p.m. ET on Wednesday, as the B’s were preparing for the Canadiens at TD Garden in Boston, Chiarelli was told by Flames GM Jay Feaster that he had “won the Jarome Iginla sweepstakes.”
Chiarelli, who told the media on Thursday that he was not given permission to speak with Iginla throughout this ordeal, then became skeptical when things “went silent” around and after 5 p.m. ET.
“We were told at noon yesterday that we’d won the Jarome Iginla sweepstakes. We believed that we’d had a deal,” he told the media on Thursday. ”We brought up Torey [Krug], scratched [Alexander Khokhlachev] and [Matt Bartkowski] – we relied on the fact that we had the deal.”
By midnight, Chiarelli had received a call from Feaster, explaining that the longtime Flames forward had chosen the Penguins over the Bruins.

The Calgary Flames scratched Jarome Iginla from their lineup Wednesday night against Colorado amid trade speculation surrounding the longtime captain.
The 35-year-old Iginla, in his 16th season with the Flames, is in the final year of his contract. Calgary is 14th in the Western Conference and will likely miss the playoffs for the fourth straight season.

Jarome Iginla is officially off the market. Hockey fans on the East Coast were up later than usual last night, waiting for the announcement that Iginla had been traded to the Boston Bruins.

It’s been a long two days since the Bruins last played, and there was no shortage of drama during that time.
After blowing late leads against the Montreal Canadiens and losing out on the Jarome Iginla sweepstakes, the Bruins would be well within their rights to come out angry Saturday in Philadelphia. Of course, they’re professionals and will likely keep an even keel, but it...

Talk about a confusing night. I shut off my computer, and phone at 1:00 am on Wednesday, March 27th with the thought that Iginla to the Bruins was essentially completed. Conflicting reports had been surfacing all night on the Twitter-verse, but general consensus was that Iginla was indeed going to Boston. When I woke up this morning,...

Goddamn. Jay Feaster is so incompetent at his job that now he's expanded business to Boston. Not only did he tell Chiarelli that the Bruins had Jarome Iginla, he also requested the Bruins sign that one-year contract with Matt Bartkowski so he'd be all contracted up for the Flames when the trade was finalized.
Matt Bartkowski confirmed his one-way contract was...
