In response to Fletcher1's comment:
I think Iginla will be one and done, unless none of the newer, younger players seem ready to move into a top-6 role.
The Bruins have plenty of veterans at this point. And one of their projected top-6 youngsters (Seguin) was just traded, so I think that in the coming years they will want to keep a top-6 spot open for youth. I think it will be Iglina's that opens next year.
i don't see any up-and-comers in the B'S pipeline ready to come in a little over a year from now and do what Iggy's still going to be able to do.... this guy's still got at least two good years left in him....
Iggy wasn't signed because he's a veteran but because the B'S believe he can still score....
if he gets off to a good start B'S would be smart to lock Iggy up for an extra year or two....
^Right, but they signed him to a one year deal, not a two-year deal. I am just reasoning as to why that is.
Neither you nor I, nor anyone else, has any idea what young forwards might develop into a possible top six guy 13 months from now. Spooner? Fraser? Koko? Reilly? Griffith, Camper? Camara? Each is unlikely, but the possibility that someone makes an AHL jump (Marchand style) is certainly possible.
