Jarome Iginla is headed to the Boston Bruins. No, really. He is this time. After the Bruins thought they had a deal to acquire Iginla right before the trade deadline this past season, he decided to play for Pittsburgh instead. The Bruins went on to eliminate the Penguins and Iginla in four games in the Eastern Conference Finals. They clearly liked what they saw out of Iginla though. The Bruins signed Iginla to a one-year deal worth $6 million.  Boston had a void in their top six after Nathan Horton left for Columbus. Will the fans of Boston boo the 35 year old future Hall of Famer everytime he touches the puck now? Probably not.
