Iginla ceremony?

Odd team if so, but maybe Iggy's schedule more than anything determines that.

Against the wild is lame, but makes sense given it's hockey night in Canada.

Iggy always wrecked the Wild. Maybe that’s the connection.

Wild are a tough draw, this might be to get more butts in the seats but yeah, poor choice on the surface if thats what this is.

Wild is lame, but Iggy always seemed to dominate them, so there is that. I wonder what his stats are against the Wild compared to other teams.


EDIT: I see people already made this point while I was typing it out.

NHL has found conclusive proof that the puck was in.

2004 Stanley cup retroactively awarded to the Calgary Flames.

If it's an Iginla ceremony, I don't see why it matters much who the opponent is,

It would be for Iginla, his family, The Calgary Flames organization and their own fans - the opposing team should matter little.

Ceremony in a game against a team that doesn't sell well (unlike Pittsburgh and Boston) probably makes sense for the Flames.

I also agree with Jiggy that the opposing team shouldn't matter much to Iginla.
