Forward Jarome Iginla has agreed to a one-year contract with the Boston Bruins, the team announced Friday. - NHL.comFlashback: During the 2012-13 NHL season, Jarome Iginla went on the trade market. Having dedicated his entire career to the Calgary Flames, the 36 year old right winger wanted to join a club with a chance to win a Stanley Cup title. With a trade already in place with Boston, instead, Iginla choose the Pittsburgh Penguins, snubbing the Bruins. The Penguins and Bruns ended up meeting in the 2013 Eastern Conference Finals. Boston swept them in four games and it looked as if the Bruins were on the verge of winning their 2nd Stanley Cup in 3 years, thus meaning Iginla had choosen the wrong team. But, the Bruins were stunned by the Chicago Blackhawks in the finals. Now the regular season and playoffs are over, and as a free agent, Iginla has choosen to sign with Bruins, this time for real. **This looks like a very good, quick, short term replacement for Tyler Seguin. Also, a Loui Eriksson, Jarome Iginla combination could end up being a very special and powerful force in the 2013-14 NHL season. Iginla will be a cap-hit of six million next season, the third highest on the Bruins behind only Lucic and Chara.
