Jarome Iginla chose Pittsburgh over Boston a few months ago, but that seems like a few years ago now. With the 2013-14 season right around the corner, Iginla is not only a Bruin, he wants to remain with the B’s for a while.
Iginla signed a one-year deal with the Eastern Conference champions in July, but he’s already hopeful he can hang in Boston past this one year. The team’s website caught up with the future Hall of Famer recently, and he said he’d like to be with the Bruins beyond the 2013-14 season.
“I’m absolutely very thrilled to come and be a part of the Bruins,” Iginla told BostonBruins.com. “The experiences of trying to win a Stanley Cup, but it’s also more than that. It’s to try and come and be a part of the team.
“I’ve heard great things about the city and hopefully things go really well and we have a great year as a team and I’d like to play there longer than one year.”
The precedent has certainly been set. The 36-year-old, who just wrapped up a five-year deal worth $7

Via Pro Hockey Talk's Joe Yerdon, Boston Bruins forward Jarome Iginla spoke with BostonBruins.com's Caryn Switaj while training in British Columbia, and she spent two days watching Iginla prepare for the 2013-2014 season...
When the #BearTracks crew met Iginla this past week, we took in his workouts, first involving sprints, reaction time and quick footwork outdoors...
Boston doesn't yet know Jarome Iginla that well - and I'm not even just referring to the fans. Many of the players and staff have yet to meet the 16-season NHL veteran until he uproots and moves into town before Training Camp in early September.
Of course it's not too difficult to know the player that he is having powered through an already illustrious career. He'...
Everyone knows that I have an undying mancrush on Jarome Iginla. ****, I even called him signing here:
Still think Iginla comes here

Apparently, Iginla wants to stay here for more than a year. The Bruins were the first to bring these comments to light:

The dreaded and boring month for Boston Bruins fans – rather NHL fans as a whole – has finally arrived, August. This month seems to linger forever for Bruins fans because it offers no development of the organization.
When I say ‘literally’ I mean it: there is literally nothing going on, ice skating wise, within the Bruins program...
We all know about the trials and tribulations of Marc Savard, Matt Cooke's dirty ******* elbow that ended his career and all the stuff he's been through trying to recover. He's had major headaches, memory issues and has trouble with bright lights at times.
We love Savard. We love Savard so much that we made a montage in hopes to inspire a comeback:
A few weeks ago, Team Canada released their camp roster and three Bruins were invited along for the ride. I would say it's a given that Patrice Bergeron makes the Team Canada roster, but Milan Lucic and Brad Marchand? Those two aren't the locks we in Boston would like to think they are. First lets take a look at the forwards list.
Note that position doesn't...
The Calgary Flames waited much, much too long to hit the restart button.They didn’t get much in bailout trades that sent Jarome Iginla and Jay Bouwmeester packing. Cornerstone goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff declined to move along and retired. Alex Tanguay cheerfully accepted his reassignment back to Colorado.The team’s big free agent addition was KHL goaltender Kari Ramo, a veteran...
