Jarome Iginla Discusses Why He Chose Pittsburgh Over Boston Originally, Says It Was All About ‘Short-Term’ (Video)

Jarome Iginla didn’t make many friends in Boston when he opted to join the Penguins over the Bruins during the 2013 season, but now sporting the spoked-B, the veteran couldn’t be happier with where he is at.

Winning is above all else for Iginla, and that was what led him to originally choose to go to Pittsburgh. They were the hotter team at the time he made his decision, but 28 days after being knocked out of the playoffs by the Bruins, Iginla signed with Boston. He is quickly making himself comfortable with his new club, and Milan Lucic and David Krejci are a big part of that.

Check out the above video to hear more from Iginla and his new linemates.
