“We kind of took it [as motivation], in that sense that when a guy chooses another team over your team, it kind of does light a little bit of a fire underneath you,” said Lucic.
Lucic later said he thought if Iginla had a chance to do it over again he might pick Boston over Pittsburgh. You know what they say about hindsight.
Until facing the Bruins, Iginla was one of the Penguins’ better offensive threats in the postseason. He finished the playoffs with four goals and eight assists but none of those came against Boston. Iginla wasn’t alone in that respect as Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, and Kris Letang also did not have a point in the series.
Now Iginla’s next question is: What will he do next? Re-sign in Pittsburgh? Test free agency? Retire? He’s got a lot to ponder this summer.
