However, as TFP reported, Calgary's failed attempt to sign restricted free agent center Ryan O'Reilly last week could hurt the team's chances of keeping Iginla.
Flames GM Jay Feaster has yet to decide what his plans are with Iginla and more generally, with his struggling team.
The Ottawa Sun's Bruce Garrioch believes that if Feaster puts Iginla on the market, Pittsburgh will attempt to acquire the pending free agent. Penguins GM Ray Shero is reportedly looking to add another winger and possibly another defenseman before this year's April 3rd trade deadline.
Additionally, several teams, including the Boston Bruins, Philadelphia Flyers, Dallas Stars, and San Jose Sharks, are all expected to make offers.
Given that Iginla will likely have a say in where he ends up, Pittsburgh and Boston seem like the best options for a chance at the Stanley Cup.
Could Sidney Crosby and Jarome Iginla be the next dynamic duo? It is, in fact, a possibility.
