I have no insider information. I’m just your run of the mill sports fan who pays attention to his surroundings. If Team A has a player who is hyped up to be traded before the deadline and all of a sudden he becomes a healthy scratch- after not missing a game since 2006-07, and Team B healthy scratches the players Team A had mentioned wanting in return, then 99.9% of the time there’s a trade in the works.
That’s exactly what happened Wednesday night. Like I said at 8:47 and reiterated at 9:28pm, I was just waiting for the Breaking News confirmation. Thankfully, ESPN came through with that at 12:30am, right before I decided to call it a night. Congratulations, Boston. You have no excuses anymore. You got yourselves a hell of a forward. I’m a huge Iginla fan. If hockey sweaters were cool to wear, and weren’t so god damn heavy, I’d for sure buy one to rock.
