Bruins And Kings Hot For Jarome Iginla

The latest update from QMI Agency is that at least one anonymous front office member from an NHL team believes that the Boston Bruins are currently in the lead in the Iggy sweepstakes:

I think the Bruins are the front runners right now, That anonymous source said. With what the (Pittsburgh) Penguins did the last couple of days, theyre motivated.

The price tag is the even bigger question, however.

While some onlookers believe that the Calgary Flames are asking for a promising young goaltender, the Bruins willingness to move 2012 first-rounder Malcolm Subban is up for debate. QMIs report indicates theyd be willing to do so, yet Sportsnets Mark Spector indicates the opposite.

If the Bruins balk, Spector points to the Los Angeles Kings as a logical destination. Theyd be asked to part with backup Jonathan Bernier and possibly a first-round pick in that scenario, at least at Calgarys current price.
