Iginla denies trade rumors again
TheFourthPeriod.com

With the Feb.27 trade deadline just weeks away, Flames captain Jarome Iginla found himself denying trade rumors once again on Monday, the Calgary Herald reports.

Following practice at the Honda Center in Anaheim prior to Monday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Ducks, the 34-year-old reiterated his intentions to remain in Calgary as he discussed his future and whether he sees himself on the move come the deadline.

"Oh yeah, I intend to," Iginla said about staying a Flame. "I think we're going to be a playoff team. I believe that . . . I don't want to speak about the Eastern Conference, but the Western Conference is tight. I don't think there's any favorite front-runner. I think if you make the playoffs, you have a shot."

Following Monday night's loss to the Ducks, the Flames sit three points out of the final playoff spot in the Western Conference with a 24-22-7 record, good for 11th place.

However, the captain strongly believes his team can make the post-season.

Meanwhile, the Flames have remain adamant about their intentions to keep Iginla, who holds a no-movement clause and earns a $7 million cap hit on a five-year contract set to expire after the 2012-13 season.

In 53 games this season, Iginla has accumulated 20 goals and 22 assists for 42 points.
