In response to SanDogBrewin's comment:
"Feaster could easily have explained why he's going to Boston."
Iginla has the last say with a full NMC. Jarome said on camera that he wanted to go to Pittsburgh. Feaster could not have made Iginla go anywhere with any explanation because Jarome could then exercise his full NMC and refuse to go anywhere.
You are beyond stupid. Drink the rest of your coffee and leave the free internet of Starbucks!
Nope. Boston was on Iginla's list. That's a fact. If Chia sweetened the pot, Feaster would have accepted.
first off, hey san. stop stealing my jokes. just kidding. that one should stick.
rusty, i have a question for you, i'm going to ask it at the end.
Here's what happened. Iginla gave Feaster a list of four teams, LA, Chicago, Boston, and Pitt.
Feaster and Chiarelli worked out a deal.
Iginla said "you know, I'd really like to go to pittsburgh instead."
How do I (and everyone else with a brain) know this? because Chiarelli said it....and Feaster said it....and Iginla said it.
Now I'm not saying that front office guys wouldn't lie to the public, they absolutely would here, but in this case it would make everyone look bad. Iginla said after he arrived in boston that it was his choice, and he chose pittsburgh over boston. Why would he lie about that and make himself look bad? Why would feaster admit to rethinking his decision to not get Jarome to submit a list in writing that was binding due to his standing with the organization. And what would Chiarelli have to gain? And lastly, and most importantly why would Feaster turn down the best offer? How do we know it was the best offer? because we have brains rusty, and it is very obvious (virtually everyone agrees with this) that the bruins package was far superior.
Don't believe me? well. here
the question is this rusty: do you ever get tired of being wrong? and not just wrong about something subjective (you're wrong about all that too though), but wrong about things that are black and white, night and day. Everyone with half a brain, a computer, and 45 seconds of free time can figure this stuff out.
