Jarome Iginla to the San Jose Sharks? Why It Makes Sense for Both Sides

If there is any bonafide NHL super star that has been unfairly put out of the spotlight in recent seasons, it would have to be Calgary's Jarome Iginla.

After Iginla led his Flames all the way to the Stanley Cup finals back in 2003-04, Calgary has gone on to make the playoffs in each of the next four seasons.

Unfortunately for Iginla, his team didn't win a single series in that timeframe, losing in the opening round every year.

But this season would be different right?

I mean, that streak couldn't possibly continue this season, could it?

Well, it did and it didn't.

This year, the Flames didn't even qualify for the playoffs as they finished 10th in the Western Conference with 90 points, five short of making the dance.

So depending on your point of view, one streak continues and one has come to an end. Calgary's streak of zero series wins since '03-'04 continues but the streak of an annual first round collapse has ended.

And consequently, with matters in Calgary heading in the wrong direction, it is highly likely that their captain and leading scorer will be shipped out of town.
