An Odd And Confused Ending To A Trade Deal With Calgary For Jarome Iginla Is In The Rear-View Mirror. And We Are Left Clutching Our Handkerchiefs And Murmuring "Tomorrow Is Another Matinee."

Dave Sandford

<p><b> Let's have one last hellish flashback, shall we? There really isn't much else in the news today! </b></p>


<li> A haggard looking Peter Chiarelli reiterated the timeline and facts surrounding the no-go with Jarome Iginla and the Flames. [<a href="">ESPN</a>]</li>

<li> There are other options for "Peter the Patient" that don't involve overcompensation. After all, the Penguins are not invincible as long as they have Marc-Andre Fleury in net... [<a href="">SportsIllustrated</a>]</li>

<li> Jaromir Jagr, Ryane Clowe, Martin St. Louis... The Bruins still have options. [<a href="">NESN</a>]</li>

<li> Besides, what the Bruins should be seeking is a defenseman. [<a href="">MassLive</a>]</li>

<li> With apologies to Bob Marley, "No Iginla, No Cry." [<a href="">CausewayCrowd</a>]</li>

<li> Shawn Thornton spoke about the failed deal, and about the Habs game. [<a href="">BostonHerald</a>]</li>

<li> And on a more lighthearted note... the Bruins have cancelled Jarome Iginla Bobblehead Night at TD Garden. [<a href="">@GlobeKPD</a>]</li>

<li> Former teammate Marc Savard wished Iginla well, and thinks Jagr and David Krejci would make magic together. [<a href="">@MSavvy91</a>]</li>

<li> "C'Mon, Ref!" features a question about the Aaron Johnson delay of game penalty. [<a href="">TSN</a>]</li>

<li> Greg Wyshynski on lack of accountability regarding penalties meted out immediately before shootouts. [<a href=";_ylt=AikLEhnijjYRJr4n1YA9eUeRbcp_;_ylu=X3oDMTE5ZGR1ZmhhBG1pdANCbG9ncyBJbmRleARwb3MDMTAEc2VjA01lZGlhQmxvZ0luZGV4;_ylg=X3oDMTFpMm9iMzh1BGludGwDdXMEbGFuZwNlbi11cwRwc3RhaWQDBHBzdGNhdANibG9nBHB0A3NlY3Rpb25z;_ylv=3">PuckDaddy</a>]</li>

<li> Here's an odd Dougie Hamilton photochop. [<a href="">@bruinshockeynow</a>]</li>


<p><b> And back to business... the Boston Bruins will play the Philadelphia Flyers in Philadelphia in a 1pm matinee on Saturday. </b></p>


<li> The injury-riddled Flyers (with former Bruin Mike Knuble) may miss out on the playoffs, but cannot be counted out. [<a href="">Bruins.NHL</a>]</li>
