Gimme a break. Players go where they get paid. Oh boo hoo we can't get Jarome Iginla, tough break for us! We don't have anyone who players dream to play with - this is a media creation. Yeah, all else being equal, guys want to go to places where there are already great players. However, these teams, thanks to the salary cap, don't always have a lot of money.
Also yeah LA's gotten lots of free agents over the years like what's his name.
They go where they get paid yeah lol which is not in NJ i think its safe to say. They didnt have to sign anyone look at their roster. One of our top player is one who couldnt crack their lineup, its saying a lot.
It's not media creating players OFTEN come out and say they signed somewhere cause they wanted to play with this and this guy. Why do you think Iginla changed his mind and he clearly said he choose Pittsburgh cause he wanted to play with malkin and Crosby. A big lol to him for that though haha
