Before the season, before the Bruins’ Jarome Iginla had donned the spoked-B sweater in a regular-season game, he was asked about possibilities missed and taken. He was asked about a Stanley Cup that could have been his.
“No,” he said. “Honestly not a lot of what-ifs.”
He said he didn’t regret the trade that almost was — when he was minutes from being dealt to the Bruins before asking onto the Penguins at last season’s deadline, a trade that could have been the missing piece to a second Cup in three seasons for Boston.
What Iginla’s done this season is bring consistency and heightened play to a line that has, in past years, been streaky through the regular season before raising its level in the postseason.
