For his entire career, Jarome Iginla has been the Calgary Flames. He's already the Flames' franchise leader in games played, goals and points and is second in assists to Big Al MacInnis. He is as much a part of Calgary as the Stampede.
So it was almost a shock across the hockey world and the mainstream media in Canada when the rumors circulated for a large chunk of this season about Iginla being traded. The rumors continued to persist until Jay Feaster took over as GM and announced to the hockey world that Iginla wasn't going anywhere and that the rebuild would be built around him.
Many media members, namely ESPN's Pierre LeBrun, have publicly slammed the move. But it looks like at least for now, Iginla isn't going anywhere. But should he be shipped off?
