Apparently there were no hard feelings.

After spurning them at the trade deadline for a chance to play with Pittsburgh, Jarome Iginla has agreed on a one-year, $6 million deal with the Boston Bruins.

There are strings attached to the cash, however. According to Pierre LeBrun of ESPN, he’ll earn $1.8 million in base salary with $3.7 million available as a games-played bonus as well as $500,000 as a goal scoring/team playoff performance bonus.

    I always have the best intentions at the beginning of each season to make a running tab of the moments most worth remembering. And, much like my determination to get back into game shape, it hasn’t happened yet.

    Still, it wasn’t too hard to come up with a list now that we’re at season’s end. The games offered enough highlights–and lowlights–to fill a full-length schedule. Here are my favorites:

    The Yakupov Slide: With the goalie pulled and Edmonton trailing Los Angeles by one back in January, Nail Yakupov crafted the signature moment of his rookie season: batting a Taylor Hall rebound out of midair and putting it behind Kings goalie Jonathan Quick with just 4.7 seconds left on the clock. He took a lot of grief for his spontaneous Theo Fleury impression, but it was a beautiful tally at a key moment. That’s exactly the kind of goal that calls for an over-the-top celly (yep, celly). You want to follow a sport that’s had all the life sucked out of it? Watch the NFL.

    Looks like the Penguins won’t have to wait until Tuesday to unwrap their present after all.

    The team announced this morning that Jarome Iginla has cleared up his work visa issues and is set to make his Penguins debut this afternoon against the New York Islanders.

    He’ll hit the ice without the benefit of a morning skate, let alone a practice, with his new team, but a pretty cushy slot in the lineup should help ease his transition.

    Coach Dan Bylsma revealed that Iginla will start the game with Evgeni Malkin and James Neal on Pittsburgh’s ridiculously loaded second line.

    Should be a lot more fun than skating with Matt Stajan, I’m guessing.
