No, Calgary had a deal in place with Boston, Calgary thought they were trading him there and Boston thought they were getting him. Iginla chose Pittsburgh instead, it was that simple and was communicated clearly as such straight from Calgary GM and Boston GM.
I wasn't there so I don't know, but if true, this was a real punk move on Iginla's part. I wouldn't be surprised in the least, though. I really have no respect for the guy. All the more reason to root for Boston now, especially when they play the Pens. (Yeah, like there wasn't reason enough already)
